ABSTRACT
The author comments on the unwillingness of some gay men to grow up. Most of the gay men I know are incapable of imagining life after 35, so naturally they were horrified to learn that I had spent a weekend in Palm Springs. If you're gay and in your '20's, you're not supposed to do this unless you work in the porn industry. Most gay men of my generation view Palm Springs as a bastion of outdated -- and embarrassing -- modes of gay expression. But Palm Springs has something to offer that the urban gay ghetto does not. It has love handles and laugh lines, big bellies and gray hair. In other words, it has middle age. Make that happy, carefree acceptance of middle age. Unfortunately, this life exists well off the radar screens of most gay men who live in urban ghettos, trapped in a perpetual state of adolescence.
