Gay Naturism

Are you Gay and a Nudist? Let's know more about gay nudists!

The term gay naturism / nudism relates to the lifestyle of gays in which nudity, especially in the communal context, is considered normal, healthy and positive. While the inception of naturist resorts and clubs date back to the 1930s, nudist organizations that were specific to gays did not emerge until the early 1980s.

In the early 1980s, a number of independent naturist clubs began to emerge in the metropolitan areas of Canada and the United States. In those days, several American cities were served by LGBT newsletters that were established during the gay liberation movement, which began in the 1970s. Newspapers like the Seattle Gay News, L.A. Frontiers and the Houston Voice played an important role in spreading the word about nudist social clubs. 

The gay and lesbian nudist communities grew exponentially in the last 1980s and early 1990s. There was a huge onslaught of GLN (Gay and Lesbian Naturist) gatherings during this period. As there were very few lesbians who participated in such events, the organization was later renamed to GNI (Gay Naturists International). The year 1994 witnessed the inception of IMEN (International Men Enjoying Naturism).

Throughout the 1990s, GNI and IMEN continued to lend support to several other organizations and clubs. There was a spike in the number of annual gatherings in the 1990s. The first annual gathering was held in rural eastern Pennsylvania in the month of August. The second annual gathering was organized by the CMEN (California Men Enjoying Naturism). Today, there are several such nudist organizations in the United States that organize annual gatherings during different months and draw a healthy crowd of 500-800 participants.

What are the advantages of attending such events?

As a matter of fact the idea of nudist dating isn't as popular as other segments of dating. While some people compare naturism with sex and exhibitionism, others fail to understand the principles followed by members of this community. Nevertheless, if you practice nudism and are looking to interact with other nudists, then these events would certainly be a perfect destination for you.

In addition, there are many online nudist dating sites that contain information pertaining to such events in your area. If you haven’t been successful in finding your special someone on any such site, you may consider the option of heading to such nudist gatherings in search of true love.
