GOC offers individual membership with the option to receive a printed magazine ten times a year.  Our magazine provides listings of all our events in the coming weeks, along with news, reports and features.  All members have access to event listings through this website.


The first four months membership is free for new members to GOC (unless you choose to receive our magazine) and you are able to cancel your membership during this period at no cost if you change your mind.

Due to the decrease in activities over the past 12 months, and potentially through 2021, we are offering a 50% reduced membership rate until April 2022, which will be automatically applied at the point of renewal. Please note that all renewals will be at the standard rate after the 13th of April 2022.

The Gay Outdoor Club is a not-for-profit members club. All subscriptions go to cover the costs of running the club.

  • You are able to go to any Gay Outdoor Club event throughout the country
  • Gain full access to the event details and forums on this website
  • Be fully covered by the club’s insurance
  • Get involved and organise an event
  • Priority booking on some events
  • Take part in member-only events, such as the Annual Outdoor Gathering

You will receive no post from Gay Outdoor Club – Information about the club and its events will be found on this website, and we will send you e-mails about important club business.

Gay Outdoor Club is a charity and is run with a tight budget, costs to members are kept to a minimum so that as many people as possible can benefit. We encourage everyone who uses Gay Outdoor Club to join and not rely on members generosity.
