Gay Camping Trip in Canada: WayHome

There’s nothing like a good ole gay camping trip in Canada with your gay boys
and experiencing a wild weekend to remember! (#Gaymping anyone?)

Thankfully MEC, one of my favourite go-to places for outdoor gear, reached out to me and other Gay influencers to show what it’s like to have some #GoodTimesOutside! So I partnered up with them to showcase the world how we gays can not only have good times outside but also a fabulous time outside! 💃🏼

WayHome Music Festival originally reached out to my youtube friends The Monastero Twins (go subscribe to these homos!) and invited them to the music festival for a fun-filled weekend of camping and festival fun in Barrie, Ontario, Canada! The Twins recommended me to WayHome as well and in the end, I also got invited and got to bring my boi Michael! 👬

WayHome also gave me two free passes to giveaway on my Instagram, so if you missed out on my giveaways, make sure you follow me on Instagram @RyanThomasWoods for future giveaways!

WayHome is a weekend music festival that has a unique option to camp in fields with your besties and offers the opportunity to make new friends with other friendly campers. Parties would go all day long and even late into the night once all the artists finished the night! There were definitely some epic parties, and did I mention lots shirtless cute boys?! 😍 💪

I love having sleepovers and camping with my besties! I also love hearing my favourite artists live (Imagine Dragons, Justice, Flume, Foster The People, Vance Joy, Marshmellow, Tegan and Sara, Frank Ocean and so much more!) and so why not combine camping and live music for one epic #gaycation with my gay besties. We were the unofficial #WayHomos that weekend! 🙌

#GoodTimesOutside With My #WayHomos

I had such a fabulous weekend thanks to WayHome & Mec! I hope the WayHomos can all go back next year for another #gaycation and for some #GoodTimesOutside 🏕️

      Yeah I’m really happy I got to work with MEC! August should still be a good month to go camping! Find a close spot, pitch a tent and have a camping weekend before summer ends 🙂
