The Prime Timers of Baltimore, a social and support club for senior gay men, will present a program on sexuality during the American Revolutionary War at the group’s monthly meeting on May 12. Paul Walker, a chief historian at Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is the guest speaker.

Walker will discuss the little-known history of sexuality in early America. Issues such as sodomy in the military and a gay hero of the American Revolutionary War will be presented. He received his B.A. at George Washington University and his Ph.D. at American University.

The meeting takes place at 6 p.m. at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, St. Paul & 20th streets. For information, visit ptbalto.org or call 410-252-7239.
