Author’s Note: This month, January, 2018, is my first anniversary of blogging here with the title: ReNude Pride. Today’s post is a celebration of this blogging achievement.
As this month rapidly approaches closing, I would be completely an ungracious fool if I allowed this occasion to pass by without publicly thanking the man who enables me to do this, the man that I love and have committed my life to, my spouse, Aaron. I am grateful for not only his support of my efforts here, but his patiently listening as I share my ideas for this site. I love you, my man!
The above photograph is of Aaron. What many don’t realize is that the vast majority of the images of my nudity were photographed by him. We both pride ourselves on our amateur photography, although I’m the first to admit that he’s much better with focusing a camera than I am!
The above picture is an enlargement of my “gravatar” that represents this site, ReNude Pride. In retrospect, this image and an explanation should have been offered before today. The concept was created by Aaron. The bare buttocks depict nudity, which is one of the essential features of this blog. The rainbow color scheme of the triangle symbolizes the rainbow flag that is the banner of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer communities, another essential feature here. The triangle shape was selected as a sign of solidarity with the same gender loving community past. In Nazi Germany, the homosexual inmates imprisoned in concentration camps were forced to wear a pink triangle sewn onto their shirts. This identified them as “sexual deviants” and undesirable to Hitler’s ideal of the Aryan race.
The men in the photo above are all lifting their glasses of champagne in a toast to all of you, the followers and readers of ReNude Pride. Without your patience, understanding and support, this publication couldn’t exist. I am grateful to each and every one of you! Here’s a salute to same gender loving bare practitioners everywhere! Everyone drink up! Each one of you has more than earned it for your loyal friendship and support.
Throughout the past year, as this site evolved into what it is today, I added pages here to facilitate communication and information sharing. Some of you have utilized these in the past and some have not. Others came here later and may not even be aware that they exist. As a refresher, I’m listing them below along with a brief summation of contents. In all cases, click the page title to view.
Home: This is the page that you are currently viewing. It is set to display the most recent five (5) blog postings.
About: This page contains background information and photos of me. It contains a brief history of my life as a bare practitioner (naturist/nudist).
Contact: This page contains a personal image as well as a contact form to send me an email. I’ll get back in touch with you as soon as I am able.
Gay and Nudist Resources: This page contains a listing of same gender loving (gay) and bare practitioner (naturist/nudist) resources that I have compiled to share here. There is also contact information for a site dedicated to men in an inter-racial relationship. If you have a resource site that is appropriate to be included, use the “Contact” form (above) and send it to me, please!
Bare With Me: This page features a collection of photographs of my nudity. It is updated randomly. Some of these images may have been contained in a blog post, others were not. When viewing this page, it is best to be completely clothes-free! I would be remiss if I authored a blog celebrating nakedness if I didn’t show my own body!
Page of Fame: This page features a listing (chronological order) of all of my blogging brothers interviewed here on ReNude Pride. Each listing shows pictures of the interviewee and a direct link to the featured interview.
My Bare Blogging Crew: This page features a listing of my favorite same gender loving (gay and bisexual) blogs and also a listing of my favorite bare practitioner (naturist/nudist) blogs. This listing is updated randomly.
There is another page that I am working on adding here, hopefully, during the Spring, 2018. The name is Nudecentric Briefs, and the plans are to monthly make updates with suggestions for those who may be considering trying social nudity and living as a bare practitioner. This project is under development and research is underway. If it indeed comes to fruition, I’ll post an announcement here when it launches. Once it is in place, the menu on the left side of your screen (for those accessing via laptop) will list it using the name: Nudecentric Briefs.
I chose that name because nudecentric is a combination of two words, nude meaning naked and centric meaning focused. Nude + centric = nudecentric. Nudecentric Briefs offers a brief description of suggestions for anyone interested in living clothes-free, whether publicly through social nudity or privately within the confines of their home or apartment.
That is the sum of what I have to offer here at this time.
