At last, Spring-like temperatures have finally arrived and now our thoughts turn to those amazing trips to the beach. It doesn’t really matter where the beach is located, by the ocean, the sea, the lake or a river. What’s important in our minds is that wherever it is, the sunshine, warm temperatures and the water will be there as will the number of men who are parading their bare bodies as we all rejoice in the ability to skinny-dip (swim naked) outdoors again among our nude brethren!
ReNude Pride in this post salutes all of its followers and readers who live in the Southern Hemisphere and are now enjoying their Summer! Have fun, be safe and please remember to wear sunscreen whenever you go outside. We all want you to be able to enjoy every day of your sand, sun and surf season. This post also reminds those of us who live outside of that region that those happier days will soon be returning to us as the seasons progress.
The above image is one that I discovered recently and for the longest time I pondered over how best to use it. Taken by itself, the photographer’s intent isn’t clear. The more that I thought about it, I felt inexplicably attached to this picture – perhaps it was due to the ambiguous meaning or message. That’s why the title of this particular post is “Uncertainty,” because that’s exactly how I feel about this photo.
This marks the first Wednesday installment of a post commemorating October as GLBTQ Bare History Month. It is probably best to remind everyone that the “B” in GLBTQ stands for bisexual and not bare. With that out of the way and clear to all, every Wednesday during October a post featuring vintage (old) photographs of bare men will publish here as a means of making amends for the tragic fact that there is not a Bare History Month celebrated nationally.
One week from today, the Summer of 2017 officially ends and the Autumn season begins. It has been a fun summer for me and I hope the same for those of you reading and visiting ReNude Pride. This weekend presents a unique opportunity for those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere as it allows us one more opportunity to get outside and enjoy a final outdoor skinny-dip (naked swim) before the official end of the “Season of Fun in the Sun.” I’m highlighting the words “officially” and “official” in this paragraph and post as experience shows us that it is still possible to have moderating temperatures even after the seasonal transition.
No matter how hard some men may try, there’s simply no escaping it. If you’ve been wearing your swim-suit all season long, every time you’re at the beach or pool. the first time that you decide to go bare, it’s going to be obvious to all: ‘This is one of the few times that you’ve been nude in your birthday suit this summer.” It just isn’t possible to fool Mother Nature and all your bare brethren.
Today, September 4, is the annual Labor Day holiday here in the USA. This is the date set aside by the U.S. Congress to honor the endeavors and labors of this country’s workforce and their contributions to the national economy and nation’s well-being. This holiday has no fixed date as it is customarily observed on the first Monday of September every year. It is also one of the few holidays in the USA that isn’t related to either a patriotic or a religious theme. Sort of an everyman’s (or everyperson’s) holiday.
