As the quarantines and other guidelines and recommendations surrounding the coronovirus epidemic are being relaxed in various countries, everyone is cautioned not to expect an automatic “return to normalcy” in our daily lives. The viral infection hasn’t disappeared or even been completely eradicated. Transmission remains a very real possibility and there exists no known vaccine or cure.
For all of us bare practitioners (bisexual and gay naturists and nudists), maintaining a respectful distance and other safe practices are highly encouraged! The reality of a secondary wave of infection remains a valid concern.
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!

The best and the traditional way to greet someone on this international day of affection, devotion, love and romance is with either a hug or a kiss (or both) and the salutation: “Happy Valentine’s Day!” So the above gif. image extends to everyone reading here a hug and a kiss and the approved salutation is included in this paragraph. Best wishes to all of you (single or otherwise) for this special day!

In the USA, as well as several other countries, today is designated National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. This is the event that empowers the African-American community to accept a major role in the prevention and treatment of HIV within not only its own community but throughout the world as well. The devastating impact of HIV on the communities of color here in the USA emphasized the need for definitive community action!

This past weekend, Aaron, my spouse, and I journeyed down to the Tidewater, Virginia, area to help my first cousin, Michael Poladopoulos, and his partner (who prefers not being named here) prepare and celebrate their yearly winter holiday charitable event. It consists of a bare gathering for the Marine Corps “Toys for Tots” campaign to collect new toys for children in need so that they may share in the season’s happiness.

Today, Sunday, December 1, 2019, is World AIDS Day all across our globe. It is the day when it is appropriate for all of us to wear a red ribbon – if a bare practitioner (naturist or nudist) such as my spouse, Aaron, and myself, paint a red ribbon – and proudly display to everyone you encounter that you recognize the importance and significance of the date. The quality of life living with HIV (the virus that causes AIDS) has improved but we do not have a cure – yet!

As I announced here this past Monday, I am ending November a day early here on ReNude Pride as Aaron and I plan to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with his family. Then, later, I realized that November has only 30 days, not the 31 that I always assume. I hope that everyone who observed the Thanksgiving holiday had a good day. Those who may have spent the entire day shopping for the winter holidays, I hope that you had a productive occasion. To everyone else, simply be thankful you escaped all the chaos and confusion!

In the USA, the month of October, annually, is celebrated as Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer History Month (GLBTQ History Month). This observance is a national time to acknowledge, focus, highlight, learn and to review the numerous and frequently overlooked contributions made by GLBTQ persons to both our national and international societies. Many of these awesome efforts were offered before what’s now the GLBTQ community was ever appreciated and recognized.

The World Naked Bike Ride is held annually, throughout the year, on every single continent on earth except Antarctica (note: penguins and seals don’t pedal bicycles). The event isn’t restricted by precipitation and most rides continue even through the rain. Downpours may affect the number of riders, but for the most part, the rides are still held. This event takes place all year long as extreme temperatures in the Southern Hemisphere are usually moderate in the Northern, and vice-versa.

Author’s Note: Before you begin reading today’s posting here, please allow me to share with you some background information on this entry. The predictions of the arrival of Hurricane Dorian along the eastern Atlantic coast of the USA were somewhat confusing and, as usual, very unpredictable. There is no guarantee of any path of a severe storm or a hurricane, despite the claims of the current USA president (he announced that the storm would wreak havoc on the state of Alabama).
