Graceful Pride!

Graceful and proud!

During Pride Month, it isn’t a requirement that we feature a daily reminder of our confidence in being both ourselves and of our being bare. However, there are occasions when we encounter images that encourage us to exhibit ourselves as an appreciation of our unique individuality!

Today’s simple posting serves as an example of that ideal. In our world, we often don’t take the time to acknowledge not only the physical beauty of our nudity but the sheer grace and poise that our being bare represents. Too often, we are ridiculed for our preference to be without the covering of clothing and are accused of flaunting our sexuality and labeled as promiscuous.

Showing their bare pride!

As bare practitioners, the majority of us have the confidence necessary to be ourselves whenever we are out in the “public eye” and under the scrutiny of others. This may not have been a possibility for our entire lives and for many is only a recent accomplishment. No matter our circumstances, it is essential that we maintain an awareness of what is happening throughout the world and keep the interests of all bare practitioners foremost in our minds!

Naked truth!

Aaron and I are off to visit my mother and siblings for ten days. Everyone is doing well but it is time for us to visit them so they will all miss us when we leave! For the remainder of this month, I have a posting drafted for the first day of Summer, 2021, and for the Bottoms-Up! series on June 30.

Take care and stay bare!

World Naked Bike Ride!

WNBR: World Naked Bike Ride!

“We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the unique dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians as well as the negative consequences we all face due to dependence on oil and other forms of non-renewable energy.”

WNBR: London, UK 2018

The World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) survived the restrictions of the coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic and continues to serve humanity in heightening awareness of safety issues and environmental energy issues. It is good to know that the world has thousands of volunteers who still work endlessly towards making our planet habitable and pleasant!

WNBR, London, UK

There exists no central council or governing body for the WNBR and each event is considered independent of the whole. The only requirement is the adherence to the guidelines towards cyclist and pedestrian safety and the seeking of renewal-energy resources for transportation power.

Preparing to begin!

The contemporary WNBR event began in 2004 and has taken place annually throughout the world. There is no official date for the cycling and as most rides are promoted locally, it is incumbent upon each site to select the date suitable for their municipality.

The WNBR strives to promote cycling and pedestrian safety and to reduce dependence on oil as an energy source. The rides do not encourage social nudity as much as promoting environmental health and prosperity.

The WNBR isn’t a major proponent of GLBTQ equality or rights however, since it began it has been a major attraction for GLBTQ participants. Environmental concerns often attract a variety of followers!

The quarantine and social spacing practices enacted in response to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak impacted the WNBR 2020 activities. Many sites were forced to postpone scheduling in the interests of public safety and disease containment.

Naked hugs!

Photo-Essay: Posing With Pride!

A tropical embrace!

A photo-essay is a document that expresses a concept or idea (theme) using photographs. ReNude Pride endorses this context as it employs the image rather than word to deliver the message. This does not belittle the importance of the printed word. Rather, it recognizes the variety of conveyance and expression!

The pictures and the .gifs here all depict a proud story of men in all their proud glory as bare practitioners!

Interracial neck nibbling!
Kissing and fondling!
Diving to skinny-dip!
Jogging along!
Posing for a selfie!
Muscular modesty!
A PRIDE tattoo!

Again, best wishes for happiness and pride to all! When having your picture taken, please remember to always “pose with pride!”

Naked hugs!

Branded Celebrity: Felipe Ferreira!

Bare and same gender loving: Felipe Ferreira!

What better way to show our enthusiasm for June: GLBTQ Bare Pride Month than to publish a post entry that features openly gay Brazilian-born model and aspiring porn star, Felipe Ferreira with his “branded” tattoo that proclaims his pride in being himself?

Felipe and his sexy hairy armpits!

Felipe first attracted my attention in 2017 as his career as a model for men’s underwear launched. I immediately noticed the pride tattoo he had located prominently at the base of his neck – long before I became aware of his confidence in his own sexuality despite the concerns of the modeling industry. He is very fit and remarkably handsome as publicists for the industry stressed the fact that he was comfortably bisexual.

Two years later, in 2019, Felipe publicly acknowledged himself as an exclusively same gender loving (gay) man and that his bisexual “cover” as a work of a model agency’s publicist intent on keeping his sexuality a secret in order to enhance his appeal to both genders.

The pride tattoo that Ferreira sports serves as a very public reminder to us all, as bare practitioners, that whereas we celebrate June, annually, as our pride month, our confidence and pride, both, our ours to observe 365 days per year – in other words, all year long!

Felipe Ferreira

It is amazing to have a celebrity of Felipe Ferreira’s celebrity status as an open model for our very own community. Through his commitment to equality and fairness, as well as his physical attractiveness, he is a very proficient and skilled ambassador to a world that often downplays our community – whether we are wearing clothes or not!

Now, Felipe is comfortable in opening new horizons in his career. He’s now appearing in “soft” pornography scenes with a growing number of major performers in the gay porn industry, such as Rhyheim Shabazz (above) and Raphael Horst (below).

Felipe Ferreira realizes the role-model status that he has with the GLBTQ community in opening doors for younger members of not only our sexuality but also as bare practitioners. It is both heartening and refreshing to see a man of his stature aware of his responsibility for guidance and self-acceptance.

Felipe Ferreira and Rhyheim Shabazz, both bare and kissing!

We all thank Felipe Ferreira, Raphael Horst and Rhyheim Shabazz for their devotion, loyalty and commitment to us bare practitioners and our unique community! Have a fantastic pride month everyone!

We all know that a pride tattoo alone is insufficient to instill confidence in being the true person that we are. The achieving of pride in ourselves requires self-acceptance, effort and hard work – and for many, both agony and pain. Felipe realizes this and strives to be a living example for all of us to be ourselves and live our lives fully and openly as possible.

Sharing!

In pursuing his interests in life, modeling and acting, Felipe is ignoring any concerns over his sexuality and continuing to serve as an honest role-model for any of the youth of our community – bare practitioners – to be themselves and to follow their own dreams. That is the path that he is showing by his example and the one we should all take in our own lives!

Remember, sometimes a simple smile is all that it takes to share our confidence with others!

Naked hugs!

June, 2021: Bare Practitioner Pride!

June is Pride Month, 2021!

June of every year, since the Stonewall Inn Riots of June 28, 1969, is observed in the USA as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer (GLBTQ) Pride Month! It is the celebration of our community, our lives and most importantly, ourselves as well as who we all are! Here at ReNude Pride, we pay tribute to this entire month as Bare Practitioner Pride Month and salute ourselves and not only who we are, but equally, our nudity, too!

Be bare, be bold, be proud!

Happy Bare Practitioner’s Pride Month, 2021!

On behalf of my spouse, Aaron, and myself the very best wishes and greetings to all of you on this momentous occasion! It was merely fifty-one (51) years ago this month, during June, 1970, that the very first – ever – Gay Pride parade was held in New York City, New York, USA. The reason for the parade was to commemorate the one year anniversary of the Stonewall riots and the instigation of the growing struggle for same gender loving that ensued.

The movement for equal rights is far from over. However, it is honest and with justification and pride that we look back over the progress we have accomplished and face the future with confidence!

Pride is alive!

Thus far, there has been no official merger of the GLBTQ community and the naturist/nudist campaign. Hopefully, this unofficial joining of the two equality and freedom efforts happening here on ReNude Pride can help start such an initiative in the forseeable future.

It is important for all of us to remember that all it takes is one small seed to grow into a mighty tree. The idea of bare practitioner pride – bisexual and gay men’s naturist/nudist pride – is planted and promoted here. That is the “seed” that is shared (planted) with you. Ideally, it will both grow and prosper!

Pride for all!

Our pride in ourselves as open and honest bare practitioners empowers our GLBTQ and naturist/nudist communities, our larger societies and our humanity. This pride enables us to move forward with confidence and to work together towards a world based on patience, respect and tolerance.

All of us as bare practitioners have an essential and vital role to play in the configuration of our united community. Our appreciation and comprehension of ourselves is the first step. We are all individual and unique. Traits that we possess in common are our sexual identity and our propensity for clothes freedom (nudity).

The realization that others exist who share our emotions, interests and outlook – that we are not alone – is a key towards self-acceptance and self-appreciation. This reality, in turn, encourages us to explore our community and to build upon the existing foundations we discover.

Rather than sitting around and waiting for fruition, fulfillment and pride to arrive at our door, it is instead incumbent upon each and every one of us to take the proverbial “second step” in this process by accepting and recognizing our duty and responsibility in creating and developing a better environment for us all! Through compromise and cooperation, we can all work together in designing, shaping and sharing and brighter and improved future individually as well as a community!

Obey all flashing signs!

A third essential role is to encourage others (family, friends) to become active and involved in determining opportunities to support the bare practitioner community. Ideas and suggestions are fine and welcome. But, we all know that hard work and logistics are also beneficial for growth and success!

This exploration and discovery helps us to acquire a sense of confidence, fulfillment and pride in ourselves, in who we are and in our community of bare practitioners within our broader and general society!

Have a happy and successful Pride Month, 2021!

Take care and stay bare!
