What is EcoGay?

An online community connected to a gay refuge in nature

EcoGay is about bringing gay men together to create an ecological stable way of life. It is a project with many options and many layers. It is scalable between one ecological farm only to a complete rural EcoGay village. It works for creating an online community and it can easily be duplicated in other places as well. The main thing is that we need to connect first to make things happen.

We want to get in touch with gay men who agree that people need to treat our planet with respect. That we need biodiversity and natural function at the center of our thinking. EcoGay is modelled after ecosystems and aims to build resilience by focussing on people in all their functions and abilities, guided by cooperation rather than competition.

We’re looking for new EcoGay Residents and for new (online) Friends of EcoGay. We offer eco holiday options as well as study options through our internship program. If this resonates with you, we invite you to check out this site. Become a friend of EcoGay and contact us or subscribe to our newsletter!

EcoGay As Organization

In the article informed consent we looked at decision making, here we’ll look a bit beyond that. People make mistakes, not because they want to, but because things can be difficult. In traditional societies the elder people played a big...
