Every nudist joining  any festival has this in mind: “Your body is a truly work of art.” It is a deep saying that becomes a principle for companies. With that in mind, on this page you’ll find useful links to some naturist or nudist clubs associations and resources that you should check out:

Clubs & Associations


Gay Naturist International (GNI)

Gay Naturists International began in 1981 as part of The Naturist Society. In 1993, we became an independent organization. Through our affiliated clubs, we lend a bare hand to any fellow who’s comfortable being gay and naked. GNI is open to all gay, bisexual, and gay-friendly men who are at least 21 years old.

The Naturist Society

Our thousands of members from across the U.S., Canada and beyond come from all walks of life. Single people, families, and retirees; teachers, construction workers, clerks and computer programmers; globe-trotters and homebodies… it doesn’t matter. If you share our underlying principle—body acceptance through nude recreation — you’re already a naturist at heart.
