By now, most of us have come across social media sensation The Old Gays on one platform or another. The Old Gays began as promotions for Grindr on YouTube and soon amassed many followers and millions of views of their videos.
Who knew that people would enjoy four 60 and 70-something gay men’s perspective on the world, their lives and their advice to younger generations of gays? And all while “being introduced to things they may not otherwise know about” per The Old Gays’ Twitter?
The men are now enjoying a huge audience on The Old Gays’ TikTok. Yes, TikTok is not just for the kids, as The Old Gays prove with over 10 million Followers and 194 million Likes.
This video, presented a few years ago by Grindr, introduces The Old Gays to the app. It’s hilarious, and the camaderie and repartee between these friends is awesome! And shows they still can throw gay quips with the best of them:
- “He’s never used a cell phone before.” “Really?” “He’s an ancient gay. (laughs)”
- “Oh I found my tribe…Twink!”
- When told they could only pick three tribes, one said, “Daddy, discreet and leather.” “You ain’t discreet.”
- “When was I last tested?” “In 1920.”
- “I got a buzz in my hand.” “Is that what you call it?”
- “What does it mean, ‘Yes, I’m a — with a down arrow?'” “Bottom.”
- Someone messaged, “You’re hot.” “You’re not.(laughs)” “You said You’re not?” “That’s a big ass.” “Shhh.”
