Joe Calleja Joe Calleja Name: Joe Calleja Several years ago, artist and photographer Joe Calleja got a great piece of advice from a dear friend decades his senior: 'Do something now that you'll be happy you did when you turn 50.' Calleja took heed of that advice and he's glad he did. Now, a few years shy of 50, Calleja is enjoying a career as a globe-trotting shutterbug who shows his work in galleries and lives a life filled with art and creativity. While turning 50 may hold a tiny bit of angst for him, Calleja has a very healthy outlook on aging, most likely attributable to the fact that he spent his youth among older gay men who were not only friends, but role models. "When I was 18 I was hanging out with guys in their 30s and early 40s," he recalls of his predominant social circle in those days. Calleja remembers the exact date he began his journey as an out gay man. It was at a time when the gay community in North America was achieving more prominence in the culture than ever before-and more attacks from conservatives. "I came out fairly young for the day," he recalls. "It was halfway through high school that I dealt with that. It was April 16th 1983 to be exact," he continues, laughing as he remembers that seminal day. It was in those formative years that Calleja found himself drawn to older men. One of his first influences and one of the first people within his family to bolster his burgeoning sexuality was his grandfather who, it turned out, was also gay. "I was around 16 or 17," he remembers of the time he had his first shot of gay pride. He was in the Navy, he was a steward on a British Navy ship and one of the things he told me was how he had more sex on that ship than he ever had in his whole life," Calleja says laughing of his grandfather's WWII memories. "Three times a day! Three different sailors!" While not really being cognizant of it at the time, his grandfather was somewhat of a role model for the young Calleja, who found himself drawn to the company of older men and the significance of those relationships. "I think they were very important on many levels," Calleja explains. There was also the attitude about taking them under their wings and seeing them through school," Calleja says of the symbiotic relationship between older men and their younger companions. "It's like that in Palm Springs, I hear," he continues with a chuckle. Joe Calleja: Mosta Dome Cathedral in Malta With 50 on the horizon, Calleja is beginning to feel a sea change in his life as he approaches the half-century mark. He is transitioning form the younger acolyte to the more experienced gay man with a history and decades of life lessons. He is now becoming the mentor. While he is busy with his booming photography career, he also has an eye to the future and when he is a senior-and what that may look like. "I think we're going to adopt new ways of growing old together," he posits. Another living arrangement that would suit Calleja in his golden years is modeled somewhat after the venerable TV show-and gay fave-the Golden Girls. "I would love to be in a situation with four or five really close friends and living together in a community and just growing old together and just being together," he muses. It could be re-imagined as the Golden Gays or the Golden Bears. In the present, however, Calleja is busy with his art, relationships and life in general. He's finding inspiration in his community and around the world. At this point in his life, he's in a good place and is achieving a balance of leveraging his past, anticipating his future and being at peace with who is in the present.
