It’s important to take pride in our bodies; all sizes, all shapes.
While admiring others rippling six packs and chiseled chests has become the norm on Instagram, The Travelin’ Bum is celebrating another part of the human anatomy, anonymous in its bouncy bounty, that’s taking all the glory and sharing stories of their proud owners.
But you won’t see any faces here – these butts are here to show the world we all share the same body – the human body – and our stories are relatable no matter what we look like.
Read some of the stories and see if you can compare your butt to one:
“My name is Luis and I am from Venezuela, living now in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. So, basically, I was having a tough situation and one of my friends and his boyfriend decided to invite me to Aruba this month, I wasn’t sure about the plan, ‘cuz of the budget, mood, time, blahblahblah, but in the end I said yes. I had the opportunity to visit the Arikok National Park in a Jeep a whole day, and I am so grateful to have lived that opportunity, not only because it is just a beautiful island in the CaribbeAn Sea, But because you never know about the opportunities that life gives you in your road. No matter what how you feel you should say yes and take new chances to make differences in your life. Get naked, leave your comfort zone for a while. Be human!!!
Hey guys I am @seabeeyes and I am a huge fan of this concept. I am Australian of mixed heritage, born and brought up in India. Homosexuality was re abolished by the Indian Govt in 2013 thus putting at risk a massive gay community. I have always felt that gay men in India do not have a chance to express themselves and live in constant fear. This pic of me, taken by my fiancè @kiwifroofroo in a Cape Town vineyard, is a shoutout to not only Indian but all ethnic gay men. Here is to “Freedom for ourselves” in the future.”
@jonnystaub : “True friend moment. For years now, wherever we travel to @danculic and I drop out drawers and capture our butts around the world. Even better, my boyfriend @nursetuna will take the pic, never jealous always happy to celebrate the moment 💚” check out Jonny’s full story on our Facebook page in our bio! Want to share your story?

Want to show love to our female followers! “Four years ago, we did not know the value of Barton’s or think of each other when we heard Timber. Four years later, our purple family has grown from a group of girls on the same floor to one that holds memories that will last a lifetime. In this short amount of time, we have grown collectively and individually. We have discovered the toxicity of a gin and tonic, the necessity of a Tim Horton’s breakfast sandwich on Sunday morning, and the importance of time. We’ve realized that often times, the library is more of a place to socialize than to work, and that’s ok. But most all, the last four years has brought together a group of random girls from across New York State and confirmed our love for each other and ourselves. Cheers to 4 years!” #NiagaraForever #thetravelinbummademedoit
“My name is Marcello. I love been naked, but I have some issues about my figure. I’ve been fat in my adolescent and a few years ago. Taking naked pics is something weird and uncomfortable when its directed to seduce other people. This time I was with a friend in a waterfall park in a city near Rio de Janeiro. We took photos of each other and I felt great. I want to do it more often. Explore my body, nature and the connection between us. I’m trying to find out new ways to experience and challenge my body and emotions”
“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
“Showing my body doesn’t threaten what I have to offer the world.

This was gay pride weekend and we decided that instead of spending most of our weekend drinking we would go hiking to the hot springs. The hike was 12 miles total to the San Antonio hot springs in Jemez, NM where it’s clothing optional. Nothing more natural than naked men in the middle of the forest at 8,000ft in elevation! 🌲⛰#travel #traveling #travelinbum #blogger #man #beach #desert #naked #sexy #ass #bootiesallovetheworld #bootie #l4l #bum #gay #gayfollow #gayworld #gaylife #gayboy #gayselfie #gaymuscle #gaycute #gayhunk
To everyone that asks who I am or what I look like; here is everyone’s chance to finally find out!

“I was born and raised in São Paulo. Here I learn who I am and lived great experiences. But sometimes, even in one of the biggest citys of the world, I have to take some time just for me, all alone. Sitting at the rooftop of my building is one of these moments, where I can feel all the freedom that I need and observe the craziness of this city.” 📷: @julioleao.fotografia #travel #traveling #travelinbum #blogger #man #beach #desert #naked #sexy #ass #bootiesallovetheworld #bootie #l4l #bum #gay #gayfollow #gayworld #gaylife #gayboy #gayselfie #gaymuscle #gaycute #gayhunk
“I’m just a French guy sharing some part of my life between different places (Paris London and my favorites places in Miami). I love to always be naked and share my secret places to my friends and my followers to discover together the best place of the world for having fun… ” #travel #traveling #travelinbum #blogger #instagay #gay #gays #gayfollow #l4l #bum #gayboy #gayselfie #gaypride #blogger #gayuk #beach #desert #naked #sexy #ass #bootiesallovetheworld #bootie
“I live in LA full time, so escaping to nature on the weekends is my secret to happiness and sanity. I love adventure, but naked adventure takes it to a whole new level. Sometimes therapeutic, sometimes sensual and sometimes just plain silly.”#travel #traveling #thetravelinbum #men #beach #instagay #gay #gays #gayfollow #l4l #bum #gayboy #gayselfie #gaypride #blogger #gayuk #sand #dunes #nevada
“Im from a conservative town close to Buenos Aires. Big family, 5 sisters, 2 brothers and of course a few dogs. Fights and laughter were always there. Growing between artists, nurses and health professionals didnt make it easy for a path to choose.” “So many options, so many passions… At the age of 17, I had my first experience with a camera. My love for photography started to emerge and the idea of coming out from the closet which I knew would break some hearts. I’ve been always hungry to see the world, I traveled as much as I could. Of course the economy of the 3rd world didn’t help me to get the necesarly equipment, so it took me a few years before I could buy my first camera. Jobs and lessons came together and suddenly my whole universe was upside down.” “Photography was the perfect tool for me to stop wishing and starting to see the beauty on this world. “Seeing”, became “Sharing”. And “sharing” is becoming “helping”. I’m now searching for the better way to help people in need doing what I love, photography.” #travel #traveling #photooftheday #photography #photographer #pride
As anyone who has ever been a kid or a teen will remember, school bathrooms are more than a place to go to the bathroom. They are a place of social interaction, where gossip is gossiped, and confidences are exchanged. When you remove a student from that community you are stigmatizing him or her. Being a teen is hard enough, but being a trans teen should be no harder than usual. The new ruling fails to take account of what common humanity should acknowledge: that within a school bathroom or outside it, a transgender student is much more likely to be the victim of bullying. Take a stand for what you believe in whether that risks your job, your friends, or your family. Basic human rights shouldn’t be taken away that were already established. #DumpTrump 📸: @hrwunderbar
As I stare out into the city I call I home, I took sometime to reflect on all the people and things I am thankful for. With thanksgiving approaching I am looking forward to spending time with my friends and family who I haven’t seen in months. Today, think of all the people you are thankful for. Be sure to tag them in the comments below so they know you are thinking of them. 📷: @dennistejero #travel #traveling #travelinbum #blogger #man #beach #desert #naked #sexy #ass #bootiesallovetheworld #bootie #l4l #bum #gay #gayfollow #gayworld #gaylife #gayboy #gayselfie #gaymuscle #gaycute #gayhunk
“This is a magical place in Ibiza, “Es Vedra” is I go to this place every year for 7 days with two friends. People on this island tell us that there are some energies like in the Bermuda Triangle that help us feel comfortable with ourselves and nature.

Happy national coming out day! “It can take a lifetime to find a group of friends that you feel completely free around. Lucky for me I didn’t have to wait that long. We are a family who laughs and cries and fight with each other constantly. Yet it always comes from a place of love and caring. We are all so different in so many ways and that is the really special thing about it. With one of us in real estate, one of us a lawyer, another a liquor sales rep and the other a yoga instructor, we all come from different walks of life and have different passions that steer our destinies yet we found each other on our separate paths walking together and I couldn’t feel luckier a man than to have these three by my side in life and travels. Whether we are off to a beach, a bar, or a celebratory trip to Puerto Rico to celebrate PRIDE with all of our brothers and sisters, there is no one else I can imagine by my side than these kooky, beautiful and amazing creatures!
