When it comes to aging, nothing makes us laugh like Molly Shannon’s endearing Sally O’Malley character from SNL triumphantly stating “I’m proud to say I’m 50 years old, I’m not one of those gals who’s afraid to state her real age, and I like to kick, stretch and kick!”

We love the character for embracing her silver years with panache. But for many gay men, aging can filled with fear and worry about loneliness, isolation and lack of visibility.

Today therapist and relationship expert Damon L Jacobs joins us to look at turning 50 with power, purpose, and pleasure. Damon just hit the 50 year mark himself and wrote a fabulous collection of blogs on growing older with style inspired by the movie The Breakfast Club.

Don’t you forget about me!
