MAGS organisations recommend mature age gay members of society to keep fit and active. Without social inclusion, it would be easy to fall down the path of depression, loneliness and self-pity. There is never a need to feel lonely, discouraged or afraid with so many support groups and agencies available at our door steps. You will find there is always access to free information for mature gays growing older to groups that regularly meet up to do pre-planned activities. Regardless of what social activity brightens your day, there is always a social group one call away awaiting your arrival to their group.
We support gay intergenerational relationships.
