Photo-Essay: August Good Signs!

Bare service benefits!

The printed sign in the lower left corner of the window above really needs no additional explanation. Along with the Rainbow flag draped over the window, this is obviously a bare practitioner supported establishment. To receive exceptional treatment, keep in mind the advice for the best available service. August evidently is the perfect month of the year for clothes freedom!

Qualified for best service!

Keep the message clear and make certain that you qualify for the guaranteed benefits. Before entering the the facility, take care of the service regulations:

Naked is ALWAYS better!
Natural is the best for us all!

If there is any consolation necessary, please keep the following summation in your mind. It summarizes what we all know to be true!

Basic fact!

In other words, take it all off and be so very glad and proud that you did!

Better bare and brave than a covered fool!

Naked hugs!

August Playdays: Skinny-Dipping Pride!

Skinny-dipping with pride #1!

After having focused on the “pride” theme for the entire month of June of this year, I realize that many reading this may ask themselves: What? More pride? Again? First, I’m not apologizing or composing an excuse for repeating the “pride” message. June is, after all, the traditional month, at least in the USA, when gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer + (GLBTQ+) celebrate and honour their confidence and pride about and within their community and culture.

Second, as the author of ReNude Pride, yes, I most definitely am trying to justify using these “rainbow flag” skinny-dipping pictures in conjunction with today’s post entry. I acknowledge feeling neglectful of the skinny-dipping subject in my blogging topics over the past couple of years. Nude swimming and bare culture are synonymous during the month of August, especially in the Northern Hemisphere. Why ignore the topical and visible compatibility?

Skinny-dipping with pride #2!

Aaron, my beloved spouse, differs with me on this subject. He feels that I do not need to validate my selection of images and theme here. This site’s dedication to the bare practitioner community and culture is self-explanatory. His reasoning is based that as this blog’s creator, editor and writer it is my “natural” (both figurative and literal) prerogative. Thus, as devoted as we both are to one another, we have our disagreements of opinions!

The large majority of us – bare practitioners as well as those who wear clothes – fully understand that there are no codes, laws, protocols, regulations or rules that limit our engagement in pride exclusively to the month of June only. Without restriction, we are entitled to act and behave with pride and respect whenever possible. Confidence is not a limited attribute.

Skinny-dipping with pride #3!

Ideally, confidence and pride were instilled in all of us since the moment we were born. However, given the turbulent times in which we live, a growing number of us are not afforded this luxury and opportunity. Whatever the cause or reason, some of us need additional patience and tolerance as we strive to achieve this within our own lives.

Not everyone of us need or require a “rainbow flag” to remind us of our pride in being precisely what and who we are. A gentle reminder from time to time is often all that’s necessary for us to experience happy and productive lives. However, we all need to be reminded of this responsibility we all share. Together, we can make a positive difference in our everyday lives and in our world!

A gentle reminder here, the rainbow flag was replaced by the Progress banner in 2017 as a symbol of our community and culture march towards equality. The Progress version is depicted below.

A personal example of not needing a rainbow or Progress flag to demonstrate one’s self-assurance are Aaron (my spouse) and I strolling along the beach in complete body freedom (bare, naked, nude) and holding hands together. Our bare practitioner (same gender loving and clothes free) status is blatantly visible to everyone around. We are doing this in public, without any embarrassment or shame – confident and proud. No apology, excuse or reasoning necessary!

Naked hugs!

Nude Recreation Week: Vintage Gallery

Social nudity smiles!

A collection of vintage photographs from my collection depicting bare practitioners from previous generations.

Nature man!

Even though the earliest observances of Nude Recreation Week didn’t begin until the 1970’s, these photographs pre-date the designation.

Breaking barriers!
Hiking dudes!
“Tug-of-War” rope pulling!

Skinny-dipping!

No matter what personal interests, outdoor nudity offers pleasures for everyone! Enjoy!

Naked hugs!

Pride Time!

Paul: halfway to destiny!

Paul is the older brother of Aaron – my spouse. Paul is also a practicing Roman Catholic and was born almost three years before Aaron. While an early adolescent, my Aaron was exploring both his nudity and his sexuality, Paul continued to adhere to the dogma endorsed and taught by his church.

By the time that Aaron reached his fifteenth birthday, he had already accepted and announced to his family and close friends that he was gay. Just prior to his high school (secondary) graduation, he disclosed his preference for social nudity. Paul remained comfortable and compliant in his religious exercise.

Relaxation!

When marriage equality became legal in the Commonwealth of Virginia in 2014, Paul had already “come-out” as bisexual to Aaron and I. Once that was accomplished, he gradually began attending clothing optional gatherings with us. Just prior to our actual marriage (August 15, 2015), Paul acknowledged his comfort with his public nakedness (social nudity) and amended his sexuality status to exclusively same gender loving.

For the past several years, Paul has lived with the same partner, named Sudhir. Together, they’ve created a very informal bare practitioner community near where they live in the western part of this state. Now that the coronavirus COVID-19 seems to be in recession, they’re planning their first potluck pride picnic on land owned by an acquaintance they share.

Skinny-dipping!

Aaron and I are leaving Arlington tomorrow and going to visit them and be with them as they host this Pride social event. The owner has a small lake on the property so, weather permitting, we can all skinny-dip and picnic while we socialize together. It should be a summer fun-time (hopefully) for us all!

ReNude Pride Is 5!

Composing in the park!

In January, 2018, ReNude Pride observed a one year anniversary. It began as a “labor of love.” I enjoy composing thoughts, expressing opinions and sharing ideas. Aaron, my legal spouse, my soul-mate – and self-styled “better-half” – enjoys the same. He agreed to wholeheartedly support my efforts here as long as I promised to obey his one rule: not to abdicate my responsibility to him! Thus far, we’re both cool and ReNude Pride continues to evolve and to grow.

Thank you!

A “lip-reading” thank you in gratuitous appreciation for your friendship and support during the publication of ReNude Pride. Hopefully, we can maintain this relationship into the future!

RENUDE PRIDE AT 5!

A Visual Summary!

Basic rule!

Bare is a welcome state of undress and is strongly encouraged and enthusiastically endorsed! Clothing is nothing more than a man-made guilt attempt to convey modesty and shame!

Confidence in being bare!

Pride is our ammunition to combat concealment, deceit, denial and falsehood! Confidence in our nakedness and our same gender love is the protective armour of body positivity! Take care and stay bare!

Aaron and Roger graphic symbol!

Acceptance, love and tolerance are the roots of prosperity and success. It is not the who that we love but the fact that we love that enables us to thrive!

ReNude Pride avatar!

The colorful diversity of the gay, lesbian bisexual, transgender and queer plus (GLBTQ+) community and our nude buttocks combine to make us all one! The Bottoms-Up! series on the last day of the month is inspired by ReNude Pride’s avatar image here!

Skinny-dipping!

Clothes free fun that can be enjoyed by everyone! Be bare, be comfortable and relax natural as often as possible! No shirt, no clothes, no problem!

Stripping off his clothing!

Our continuance to renew (word-play: renude) our preference of being proud bare practitioners. Hence the title of this publication: ReNude Pride!

Naked hugs!

June Gallery: Bare Pride Month

The Stonewall Inn riots happened in New York City during June, 1969 – for many gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer (GLBTQ) people, that event led to the modern growing trend towards the equality of GLBTQ populations all over the world. Although many of our community are still awaiting for their complete freedom from oppression, the New York City riots indeed created a recognition of our struggle for human rights. The”rainbow flag” is considered by all to represent our struggle.

Sorry!

I offer to all of you a sincere apology for not publishing here yesterday, Monday, January 13, 2020. The reason for the absence was a very last-minute disaster at my job that was unforseen and beyond my control. I wasn’t made aware of the situation until it was too late to update my draft for the regular entry. My presence at my office was deemed immediate and absolutely essential.

ReNude Pride: Third Anniversary

ReNude Pride first published here in January, 2017! For me, the time appears to have grown wings and flown past and it is difficult to believe that this month marks another milestone! This isn’t the first public blog endorsing same gender loving (gay) nudity that I have published but it is one of my favorite leisure time hobbies. At times, it is an exhausting endeavor, but for the most part, it is fun!
