The Good News
The e-mail announcement was sent the day after Spring arrived. All of the recipients were naturally ecstatic over the return of the warming season so the timing of the notification made perfect sense. Keep the “good news” separate from the welcoming of springtime!
The good news? The reviving (return to life) of our little “partner’s club” of bare practitioners appropriately named the BP’s (bare practitioners). In all honesty, we aren’t legally nor officially named anything. We simply refer to ourselves as the BP’s.
My identical twin, Alex, our first cousin (9 years younger) Michael and I were the initial members of the BP’s along with whoever we were dating at the time. This was before marriage equality and the calm, progressive time-frame of Mr. Obama’s presidency.
Fast forward to the present and add my spouse, Aaron, to the BP’s members listing plus Dante` (Alex’s current mate), Ropati (Michael’s partner and soon-to-be spouse). Non-related now includes my friend, Jay (and his significant, Raheem) and Paul (Aaron’s older brother and his man, Sudhir). Our oldest brother, Nick, is an ex officio member; he’s same gender loving (SGL) but only a discretionary nudist. Somehow, Nick manages to survive being clothed most of the time!
We constitute the core-group of the BP’s. Others have affiliated over the years but have either ended a relationship, fallen “out-of-touch” (uncommunicative) or physically moved away from the area. To my knowledge, no one has become textile or married someone of the opposite gender!
The coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic caused a two-year hiatus from our joint adventures together. Travel restrictions and group gathering limitations forced us to simply adhere to public safety guidelines and exchange images of ourselves (no clothing allowed) instead of having several BP’s excursions during the course of a calendar year.
In addition to announcing the resuscitation of the BP’s, the e-mail notice contained other information that was personally rewarding for me. Raheem (Jay’s significant other), volunteered to serve as our “BP-of-contact” for the upcoming future. Another “treat” to welcome the return of the warming time of the year!
I’ll again mention here of Raheem’s creativity. He’s the man who made the BRAT entitlement for my January 3, 2022, post entry here on ReNude Pride. His energy is hopefully contagious to us all!
The first BP’s excursion for this post-epidemic season is planned for the end of May. The replies to Raheem are promising which indicate a positive revival of both bare fun as well as BP’s excitement!
