Full Membership Benefits
Support The Club and Our Operating Costs ~ Prevent Us To Shut Down
The website is owned and run by GayOutdoors. As with any online website and club, there are operating costs associated with hosting and running it. Your membership dues go to keep this incredible club and its website operating for gay, and gay-friendly outdoorzy guys. This includes providing trips and website upgrades. For many, this alone is worth a small price of membership.
Full memberships will ensure that we remain a nationwide resource for the gay community, that we remain a strong and viable nationwide organization and that we remain around.
A Full Member Badge appears in your profile that provides instant credibility and will increase your overall interaction with other members. Your profile will be rotated on our home page. A GO Sticker will be mailed to you to place on your car so that other outdoorzy guys can find you outdoors.
Access To Restricted Areas
Once you are a full member of GayOutdoors, you gain access to restricted areas:
- Priority profile ranking on all member search results and Who's Online.
- Find out which members have viewed your profile.
- Send instant messages to other members.
- View member home pages.
- Enlarge all the photos in a member profile.
Voice On GayOutdoors Matters
After a year of being a full member, you can join our Board of Directors and have a voice on how GayOutdoors uses membership proceeds to improve the website, promote the club and shape its future. It's "our" collective money, so we should all have a say in how we use it. >> Click here for more information on our Board of Directors
