We’re Jamie & Aaron, a couple from Melbourne, Australia and TropOut’s founders.
We came up with the idea of TropOut because the kind of gay travel experience we were after didn’t really exist: getting out to experience the culture of an amazing destination, unwinding in comfort, partying in style and sharing the experience with likeminded guys from across the globe. Everything seemed either too party-focused or sightseeing-focused… so we decided to blend the two, with some relaxation thrown in for good measure!
In 2015 the idea became reality and TropOut was born. Our first festival took place in Phuket in 2016, where guys from 21 nations came together for a week filled with island trips, morning yoga, and some amazing parties – our beach party right on the sand headlined by German DJ Robin Schulz opened TropOut in style! Since then we have operated festivals in New Caledonia (2017 & 2018), Koh Samui (2018 & 2019) and Malta (2018).
What makes us most proud about TropOut is that so many genuine friendships have been formed – somehow there’s always an amazing mix of fun and friendly guys who don’t take themselves too seriously, and so there’s a great community vibe.
Thanks for taking the time to visit us, and hopefully we get to meet you at an upcoming TropOut.
