AGN Club Information

Who We Are

Austin Gay Nudists (AGN) is a social club that promotes healthy, legal, non-sexual nude recreation for gay men in the Central Texas area. Originally formed in 1985, AGN has evolved into an all-volunteer, non-profit organization for gay and bisexual men age 21 and over that offers the opportunity to meet and make friends with others who share an interest in social nudity. We are a diverse group of men of all ages, body types, and races. Most of our events are in the Austin area but our members live in all parts of Central Texas.

AGN's goal is to promote healthy, legal, non-sexual nude recreation; we are not a sex club. While sex is natural, it is not equated with nudism or naturism. We respect our members for their individuality whether or not they choose to express their sexuality and to respect individual sensibilities as may be appropriate, encouraging our members to do the same.

Why Join AGN?

A nudist or naturist is one who enjoys being nude for social and recreational activities, both indoors and out. We enjoy the freedom of being without clothes whenever possible and practical. Men throughout the world have organized many gay and bisexual male nudist/naturist clubs - check out the links in the "Resources" section for more information on other clubs.

Body acceptance is what we’re all about. 
Unfortunately, we live in a culture where people – gay or straight – have learned to dislike or feel uncomfortable about their bodies because they perceive a lack of “perfection.” Believe it or not, we think everybody is perfect! Being nude lends itself to making everyone more open and honest without the façade of clothing. We become more accepting of others, and most importantly, we learn to accept ourselves. In addition to body acceptance, there is the exhilaration of nude recreation and the experience of water, air, and sunlight on your entire body. Finally, you will enjoy a special camaraderie and will have the opportunity to make unique friendships with other men who share common interests.

AGN offers a variety of nudist events that range from house parties to trips to Hippie Hollow to volunteer weekends at the clothing-optional Texas Conference of Clubs (TCC) campsite to our annual CampOut, a full weekend of fun in September at TCC. We also have clothed events around Austin that are a great way to get to know each other in a variety of fun settings.
