In honor of Halloween being the very last day of the month of October, it is only fitting to observe the occasion with a nice body painted pair of buttocks with a pumpkin face! In this instance, it sort of incorporates the celebration of both the Bottom’s-Up! feature of ReNude Pride and the Halloween event. It absolutely makes my job easier combining the two!
In preparation for the Halloween date, October 31, here’s a suggestion for all of those who feel the uncontrollable urge to disguise themselves. Simply use body paint to adorn your body and conceal your identity. It doesn’t involve a costume and is relatively easy for most bare practitioners to enjoy. Our man above simply used black body paint to place a Halloween pumpkin face on his buttocks. How appropriate!
This is another Friday, the fourth, during 2019 GLBTQ Bare History Month. The post today is the last one in this series for this annual celebration. The heading picture, shown above, features a man in the early days of color photography poolside with his beach ball. Judging from the man’s hairstyle, the picture dates from the middle 1960’s. There is no information of the photographer.
One of the most unexplored topics of our community history is the growth and development of bare (naked, nude) culture within the modern GLBTQ movement. For far too long, we bare practitioners (naturists or nudists) have been ignored and overlooked by the overwhelming majority of our society. The purpose of this posting here is to offer a brief and minimal accounting of our heritage.
As those of you who follow ReNude Pride or who visit here regularly already know, I could not allow this observation of GLBTQ Bare History Month pass without posting pictures of one of the most popular naked past-times, skinny-dipping (swimming nude). The man in the above image is bottom’s up in an indoor pool. Judging by his hair style, it is probably the late 1950’s to early 1960’s, before The Beatles became famous.
Today, the second Monday in October, is an official holiday in the USA. For more than a century it was entitled Columbus Day, in honor of the Italian born explorer who sailed the North Atlantic Ocean for King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of what is now the Kingdom of Spain. Christopher Columbus was searching for a new route to India but was soon famous for “discovering” the New World.
Today is the second installment of this series for Fridays during 2019 GLBTQ Bare History Month here on ReNude Pride. As a reminder, every Friday in October will have a post in celebration of our same and dual (bisexual) gender loving community heritage in honor of our bare practitioners (naturists or nudists). This post’s “heading” photograph shows us a man posing his buttocks at a photographer’s studio in New York City in the year, 1900.
