Armistice Day, Remembrance Day, Veteran’s Day, 2019

On this date in 1918, the armistice (end of belligerence document) effectively brought an end to the death and wounding of the Great War, World War I. Although the fighting ceased, the war itself was only on a temporary cessation until a permanent peace treaty was signed by the belligerents. That fact occurred on June 28, 1919. One hundred years ago this year.

Reflections: October – November, 2019

This upcoming weekend has led me to a serious and in-depth thoughtful assessment into my state of mind. On Sunday, November 10, is the first year anniversary of the death of my father. I knew that the first full year living without him would be depressing (at times) and difficult. However, nothing really prepared me for the overflow of feelings of both gratitude and joy as I recalled episodes of my life with Pop.

Bare November

November, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, is the last full month of the autumn season. Generally, throughout most of the hemisphere, it isn’t a usual time where the outdoor temperature is exactly conducive to being bare outside.

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!

Halloween, 2019: Body Painting

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!

Photo-blog: GLBTQ Bare History Month Friday #4

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.

GLBTQ Bare Basics Briefs!

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.
