Best topless parading grounds

We've sussed out some opportunities for gay men to get about topless this summer...

Melbourne can get pretty hot in summer – something that many people conveniently forget, until we’re hit with that four-day heatwave and they start bleating about how hot it is. Of course, this hot weather is the perfect excuse to get around wearing as little as possible, working on that tan. We’ve put together ten opportunities to parade around topless.

Prahran Aquatic Centre

This is where the gay boys flock to preen their plumage and parade their packed lunch. The pool is overrun with tanned torsos, sexy Speedos, and happy chatter. Gay heaven. Prahran.

Sandridge Beach

Sandridge, at the business end of Port Melbourne, is also the gay end. To the right of the Life Saving Club is a good parading ground – and so are the bushes. Speedos or shorts essential. Port Melbourne.

Fitzroy Swimming Pool

Northside gay boys and girls can be seen flaunting themselves along the poolside bleachers under the pretence of swimming laps for fitness. Sorry guys, we know why you’re really here... Fitzroy.

The Tan

Looking for an excuse to run with your singlet tucked into your shorty shorts? The Tan is best place to show off – er, exercise. And you won’t be the only one; much mutual appreciation will be had. Melbourne.
