Today is a remarkable day on this planet known as Earth. In the Northern Hemisphere (north of the Equator) it is not only the very first day of the season of Summer, 2019, it is also the longest day of sunlight in the annual calendar. If that isn’t enough notoriety, today is also World Naked Hiking Day! Thus, in the Northern Hemisphere, it is possible to skinny-dip (swim naked) and to hike bare (clothes free) both on the same day!
The men are the same individual, just that one image (left) shows him clothed and in the other image, he’s equally happy and proudly bare. The purpose is to introduce the concept or idea that clothing doesn’t necessarily enhance our image, personality or presence. That’s the summary of the title of this post Nude Pride: “On Clothes.” The “On Clothes” is the title of a poem written by Kahlil Gibran and it dispels the dependence on clothing.
Many may ask: “If you’re really bare, then what is there for you to wear?” To clarify, allow we to point out that if we are really bare, then there’s one thing left that we all can honestly wear and that item is our smile! Just as Robert Craig, Adrian Hart and Sean Zevran (left to right in the above photo) are demonstrating! Our smile sends a special message to all those we meet!
“June is known as gay pride month.” A very basic and original statement to denote a very unique and ultimate description of the importance and the significance of the 30 day month. However, in today’s world and its ever-changing culture and politics, “June is known as gay pride month” is no longer relevant nor entirely truthful.
Bottom’s-Up! posts are how we end every month here at ReNude Pride. We celebrate being bare and clothes freedom, so why not the final day of each and every month of the calendar year? Whether we are able to showcase our buttocks indoors or outdoors, the fact that we can even commemorate both the occasion and our anatomy is reason enough to proudly display ourselves!
As I’ve written here before, this summer I’m teaching a class at my university on the centenary of the Treaty of Versailles that brought an official end to World War I, the Great War. This also marks my first time teaching a class during a summer semester. This is an update on that experience and what it means to me, personally. Today is the end of my first week teaching this class. The class is only three consecutive weeks so in a “nutshell,” today means it is already a third of the way through!
The heading photo and the calendar for bare events for this month are located on the website of Nudist Planet, founded and authored by my fellow bare practitioner and blogging buddy, Kenn. Both Kenn and his spouse currently live in Thailand and for the past several years, he’s published his website as a tool to increasing interest and knowledge of clothes-freedom everywhere for everyone.
