Welcome to Boomer Hottie. Where everything is possible at any age!
I’m Barbara, I’m seventy-five, and I want to be a movie star. I want fame, fortune, sex, and romantic love. People said: “Too late. Take a cruise to Alaska. Find a husband. Go for assisted living.” On and on. “Age racism! ‘ I protested. I wasn’t going to be segregated into the number game.
So my fifty year old fabulous agent/producer daughter, Suzy Unger, agreed and said she often experiences ageism. We decided to form the Boomer Hottie movement. It’s not a fad, a sound bite, or a style; it’s a way of being. Who you are.
THE BOOMER HOTTIE MANIFESTO!
WE DEFY THE AGE RULES
WE DRESS THE WAY WE WANT: NOT THE WAY WE’RE SUPPOSED TO
WE CREATE OUR OWN FASHION
WE ARE NOT INVISIBLE
WE ARE STARS
WE MAKE OUR DREAMS COME TRUE
WE OWN OUR AGE
SO WHAT MAKES A BOOMER HOTTIE?
A Boomer Hottie doesn’t define herself by age. Boomer Hotties don’t re-invent themselves. They are already invented. They are pioneers of the new AGELESS generation. They move forward and not backwards into the past. They have individuality. Confidence. Attitude.
