IMAG­INE LAND­ING on a pris­tine trop­i­cal beach – where swimwear is the uni­form – and meet­ing like-minded gay men from around the world for days of par­ty­ing and re­lax­ation. That’s the TropOut ex­pe­ri­ence in a nut­shell.

Their next event is in New Cale­do­nia in De­cem­ber on a pri­vate is­land. The “long gay week­end” in­cludes par­ties on the is­land and a Reef Party on a float­ing club.

“This is a re­laxed day party that lifts as the day goes on,” says TropOut’s Jamie Hutchin­son. “We ar­rive by wa­ter taxi, chill on sun lounges, snorkel over the reef and, as the day pro­gresses, the tunes lift and the guys hit the dance floor.”

In 2019 TropOut will host the of­fi­cial post-White Party Bangkok New Year re­cov­ery week in Koh Sa­mui in a re­laxed, bou­tique beach­front re­sort.

“We of­fer some­thing up­scale that has a fo­cus on peo­ple get­ting to know each other,” says Jamie. “Be­cause of our group size, we’re able to fo­cus on in­di­vid­ual ex­pe­ri­ences and de­liver unique par­ties, such as on lux­ury yachts and at small se­cluded beaches. This cre­ates an en­vi­ron­ment where it’s easy to gen­uinely con­nect with a range of peo­ple.”

Be­tween 70 to 100 guys gen­er­ally stay in the pro­vided ac­com­mo­da­tion but the par­ties can at­tract up to 500, and the feed­back has been great. “We’ve re­ceived mes­sages from guests telling us that they’ve had a life-chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. That’s very re­ward­ing for us,” says Jamie, who de­scribes the av­er­age TropOut guest as be­ing 25 to 45, pro­fes­sional, and from a va­ri­ety of back­grounds. “So far our events have been very friendly and non­judge­men­tal. Our guests love fun and liv­ing life to the max.”

Is there more to TropOut than boys, beaches, par­ties? “Boys, beaches and par­ties are im­por­tant to us but we aim to de­liver ex­pe­ri­ences that bal­ance unique par­ties with op­por­tu­ni­ties to un­wind and ex­plore. We of­fer morn­ing yoga, re­laxed days at the beach, and cul­tural and sight­see­ing ex­pe­ri­ences.

“We had guys from 21 dif­fer­ent coun­tries at our last event. It’s im­por­tant that we have this in­ter­na­tional feel so the guys can share ex­pe­ri­ences and meet in­ter­est­ing peo­ple from dif­fer­ent back­grounds. Di­ver­sity is the spice of life!”
