The Travelin’ Bum is de naam van een Instagram-account dat verhalen verzamelt van mannen die nu dik tevreden en gelukkig zijn, maar ooit moeite hadden met hun coming out of hun geaardheid.
Op het account verschijnen dagelijks foto’s van mannen in hun blote billen. Ze geven zich letterlijk bloot omdat ze willen laten zien dat ze lekker in hun vel zitten. ‘Maar Winq, dat kan toch ook met een selfie?’, horen we jullie nu denken. Inderdaad, dat had inderdaad ook gekund. Maar het account heet natuurlijk niet voor niets The Travelin’ Bum.
De 24-jarige bedenker van het account wil anoniem blijven. Hij vertelde aan Elite Daily dat hij wekelijks 100 tot 150 foto’s krijgt toegestuurd van mannen die zonder broek hebben geposeerd in de vrije natuur – dat laatste is een voorwaarde.
Heb jij een fotogenieke bipspartij? En een mooi verhaal? Wat let je! Stuur je foto naar firstname.lastname@example.org en wie weet word je ‘bum of the week’.
"Coming out at 22, I've always felt like a late bloomer. It took a while for me to fully be able to express myself and get a grasp on the gay community and its culture. Though it felt like a huge boulder had been lifted from my chest, I still felt a little guarded when it came to truly being able to express myself. It was after a while that I realized my friends and family never saw me in any light different than what they'd seen since first meeting me. My sexuality never altered how they viewed me and the only thing I had to get past was worrying they'd judge me or think of me in something different way. In reality, they probably knew I was gay before I even knew I was gay. Finally accepting me for me was one of the most enlightening and liberating experiences I'll ever get to experience... along with flashing my white ass in front of a lot of strangers with @thetravelinbum I've grown so much over the last few years, overcoming anxiety and just the general fear of not being able to be myself. Now, I couldn't picture life any other way. I'm me. Nobody's going to force me to change who I am. " 📸: @nick40v
"I'm 24 years old, and have just spent a month exploring all of India, traveling the country by car, boat, camel and plane. I'm a microbiologist and the diverse types of microflora found in each different type of environment that I visited is what drew me to this country, along side the food and culture and difference in lifestyles. My greatest adventure their was zip-lining around an a Fort which had been abandoned for centuries. My biggest regret was having Delhi belly while doing the zip-line"
"One year ago my relationship ended and my job was not motivating me anymore. I've never worked abroad before but I thought now is my time to experience the beautiful Greek Island Rhodos. It's been amazing 6 months 😉" #travel #traveling #travelinbum #blogger #man #beach #desert #naked #sexy #ass #bootiesallovetheworld #bootie #l4l #bum #gay #gayfollow #gayworld #gaylife #gayboy #gayselfie #gaycute #gaymuscle #gayhunk
Don't show off. Don't get puffed up and big-headed. Be ha`aha`a (humble), which does not mean timid, submissive, and spineless. An inner self-confidence which gives rise to quiet strength is far more admirable than self-importance, arrogance, and egotism. That is the Hawaiian way. #aloha #hawaii #waikiki #honolulu #diamondhead #trail #travel #traveling #travelinbum #blogger #instagay #gay #gays #gayfollow #l4l #bum #gayboy #gayselfie #gaypride #blogger #gayuk #beach #desert #naked #sexy #ass #bootiesallovetheworld #bootie
