In 2015, a non-profit gay group in South Florida, was accused of discrimination after they stated that anyone over the age of 40 would be required to pay a 'donation' to obtain entry into a pool party that the group was hosting.

What's sad is that this is not an isolated occurrence.

Often, mature gay men are left to fend for themselves with the majority of queer groups and government funded organisations focusing on queer youth, and young gay men.

This, however, is a trend that can be seen across the world regardless of ones sexuality.

If you go to a gay bar, you'll often find that older gay men are ignored or treated with outright hostility.

Pride parades will see a specific focus on the 'idealised' (and idolised) image of young and handsome gay men - with beauty and body image being the central components.

The queer community already has a lot of issues to deal with from heteronormative society, without being put into a position of being against itself.

The youth of today don't necessarily understand the challenges that queer people have had to face throughout history and it’s an important part of our cultural heritage which is being lost.

Often, this will see older men relegated to the stands, or limited to their own 'specialised' floats.

It’s a bizarre occurrence because there's a certain arrogance in the idea that whilst you're young, you're never going to get 'old', despite the idea that getting old and growing mature is a simple, and unavoidable, fact of life.

Mature people, the elderly, are often left to be forgotten.

The comedian, Ricky Gervais, put this serious issue in the headlines by making the suggestion that people of maturity are often neglected, and indeed forgotten, by society because people simply do not want to be reminded of their own mortality.
