"What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful that the garment with which it is clothed?"





C.A.N.S. is an organization of gay male nudists and naturists that have been dedicated to accepting and appreciating the human body in its naturally beautiful state since 1989. C.A.N.S. provides opportunities for gay naturists to gather for fellowship and camaraderie.

 Members come from all parts of the Chicagoland area -- city, suburbs, and outlying areas, including downstate Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

Some have been nudists for many years, while others have only recently discovered the fun and enjoyment in social nudity.

Our membership is diverse in many ways -- we are short and tall, wide and thin, quiet and outgoing, gay, bi and gay freindly, young and young at heart. What brings us together is our common appreciation of social nudity in a nonsexual context.

Any gay/bi/gay friendly male who is at least 21 years of age is welcome to attend C.A.N.S. events.

The rules are simple and common courtesy is key. Bring a towel, a clean, fresh showered body and a friend ready for an adventure.

There is typically a modest charge to help cover the costs of an event.
