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/events, outdoorzy buddy matchmaking, links/articles, website upgrades, outreach/advertising, trails stewardship and much more. 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.
