Add this share

No matter how obsessed your straight friends are with Halloween, they can’t compare to the costume bar that gets raised at Atlanta’s gay events each year. Settle in as we enhance your old standby slutty gay cop and sexy jock with some up-to-the-minute gay zeitgeist.

A nip in the air just means more nipple to love on those bold shirtless gay Halloween sluts. And every gay who’s any gay already knows what not to wear. We're all over Halloween.

Sure, you could always see how gay celebrities dress up for the holigay. There is even a site dedicated to gay costumes. Or you can see what a columnist calls this year's gayest. But who needs them when you can look to gay Atlanta’s own? Last year’s boys turned it out, and along with a few new faves from around the web, these ideas should help spark your wild imagination.
