UPDATE: Some of us weren’t too sure about how a discussion on gay sex would go when the Rainbow Seniors got together today for their monthly potluck. Talking about the latest LGBTQ books, films and entertainment over a delicious potluck lunch, the time to confront the subject of love and sex later in life arrived when this video was shown on a laptop:
While most of our members skew a bit younger than this mixed group of seniors, they had no hesitation to launch into the subject. But before the short clip had played out, the laptop went “pop” and fell silent, obviously gobsmacked that the subject of love and sex late in life was even being broached by us. Inside a church. And we were laughing about it.
But the conversation between the seniors took off for one of the most interesting, personal, down-to-earth discussions to date, and we all emerged from the packed library refreshed in spirit, and happy for our new connections. We can’t tell you what was said, once the door was closed, since we agreed that everything said inside our meeting room remains inside that room.
The next meeting in Williamstown at the First Congregational Church will be noon on Tuesday, March 15, 2016. (Third Tuesday of the month as usual.)
It’s a potluck lunch, so bring something to share and be ready for some interesting conversation. We have no idea what will be served up – nobody can predict the menu nor the topic – but it’s pretty much guaranteed that a good time will be had by all.
Some folks from our first Pittsfield meeting made the trek to Williamstown, just as some North County folks helped kick off the Pittsfield gathering which take place on the first Saturday of the month. The next one is March 5, 2016 from 2-4pm at the Berkshire Athenaeum, 1 Wendell Avenue, Pittsfield. Head to the conference room, and here it’s not a potluck, just a few refreshments that are passed around. The early birds get the prime seats around the big conference room table.
