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.
My spouse, Aaron, and I thoroughly love to appear publicly with our hands resting on one another’s buttocks. It is our fondness for sharing our comfort and our intimacy with our bodies. For this month’s Bottoms-Up! entry, Aaron did suggest an alternate title for this posting: COVID-19 (coronavirus) Kiss My Buttocks! That remains the unofficial title of this particular entry.
The Memorial Day holiday is the day in the USA that is officially observed in honor of all of the men and women who sacrificed their lives in the defense of this country. It is also celebrated here as the unofficial beginning of the Summer Season – the time of outdoor pleasure and play for the bisexual and the same gender loving (gay) naturist and nude communities.
Just imagine waking up and realizing that in the entire world, you are the solo – the one, the only, the completely total – bare practitioner left on this planet. There isn’t another naked or nude or clothes free person left anywhere around. Everyone else is proudly covering themselves in clothes! There is not another person who is bare and confident. You are it! What the hell do you do now? Do you scurry in shame into your closet, drag out a wardrobe of garments and conceal yourself?
It is almost unbelievable! Yet, when we sit back and think about it, the reality is very difficult to discredit. March may indeed be a month of madness but the bromantic (brotherhood of romance) moments during this time of the year are very few and very…unknown! Aaron, my spouse and I were trying to identify a passionate play-date for this month over the weekend and we were unable to recall a single occasion!
Jumping and leaping in the desert may not be for everyone – there are countless numbers of bare practitioners who are truly addicted to the beaches! However, the global phenomenon known as Leap Year only happens once every four years, so I imagine it is one occasional occurance that the overwhelming majority of us can live with! To everyone, Happy Leap Year and happy leap year day!
Even though 2020 is a “leap year” with an extra day applied to this month, it still remains the shortest month of the entire year! Believe it or not, the end of the month is almost here and so we arrive and observe yet another Bottoms-Up! The good news, at least here in the Northern Hemisphere, is that this is the very last full month of winter!
“S’Naked” is a very simple description of just being bare (naked, nude) while outside in the snow (snow + naked = s’naked). The word is probably complete unlisted in the dictionaries of the English language. This is due in part to limited usage – not even all the naturist and nudist communities are familiar with the term. It is primarily referenced within the same gender loving (bisexual and gay) bare practitioner community.
Bare practitioners, whether they think of themselves as a naturist or a nudist, have no sense of guilt or shame over the human body. It is simply our natural selves that we prefer not to conceal or hide with clothing. We are completely comfortable and relaxed being just who we really are. We reject the concept that nudity is obscene or offensive. We are all the same underneath our garments. Who authorized anyone to determine differently?
The purpose of this posting is to share images of same gender loving (bisexual or gay) African-American men featuring their appreciation of the bare practitioner lifestyle. ReNude Pride is focused on both bisexual and gay men and nudity, so this is an appropriate occasion to honor those men and celebrate our similarities in our lifestyles!
