The Boston Area Naturist Group (BANG) is a gay male nudist organization with members from all across New England. BANG was established back in September of 1986 when a few friends decided to stage a "dinner in the buff." Since that time, the group has grown to over 100 members, and regularly holds nude gatherings in private homes, exclusively-rented facilities, and public areas commonly used for nude recreation. Both day and evening events are popular as well as weekend getaways.
Our typical activities include house parties and potluck suppers. In the winter, we have indoor nude swims and hot tub parties, while in the summer, there are visits to nude beaches and swimming holes, and nude camping and hiking. There are also visits to area nudist camps, and joint activities with other gay male naturist clubs both locally and nationwide. All of which culminate each year at the GNI and IMEN Gatherings.
OUR AIM IS TO PROMOTE THE SOCIAL AND RECREATIONAL BENEFITS OF NUDITY WITH AN ORIENTATION TOWARD THE GAY MALE LIFESTYLE.

Remember that nude people don't have pockets. Your valuables may not be as secure as you think. Bring only what you need with you, and leave the rest under lock and key.
A not-so-gentle reminder: Illegal drugs are never permitted at BANG events. Those caught with drugs will be banned from future events.
