Strip down and sex up these gay Halloween costumes

Add this share

Don’t tell us you’re without a costume for the big night. When the All Hallow’s Eve moon rises on Saturday, gay boys in a pinch for ideas know that it’s time to whip out that smokin’ body and flaunt it.

Lord knows dancing queens do it all year, but other than a summer pool party, a fall Halloween costume is your next best opportunity to show off the body you spend so much time honing and pumping. Shirtless is the name of the game, and daring to be baring more than that is also on the table.

We say reject all slut shamers, embrace your sexuality, and let the rest of us have it full throttle. Some guys are already setting the costume bar for 2015.

Let the gay Halloween hunks from the past be your guide below. After perusing our picks, find more in the full galleries from 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2011.


You’re go for gay firefighters and Village People archetypes.



As well as not-so-latent lumberjacks.



And for gaying up every last hero and villain.



As well as every beloved childhood icon.



Speaking of kid favorites, gay them like this.



Or like this. Et tu, Red Riding Hood?



Everybody wants to strip a man in uniform.



Pop culture is always fun.



And history through a gay lens is always popular.



How many ‘woofs’ are you looking for?



Or is it just not Halloween without a little gore?



Maybe you’re into jocks – and other assorted sportswear.



Of course, taking off your shirt can still defy categories.



Just embrace going short on costume, long on body.
