Today, December 7, is known as Pearl Harbor Day in the U.S. On this date, in 1941, the Japaneses attacked the Pacific Ocean fleet at the Pearl Harbor Naval base in the Hawaiian Islands. This early morning bombing mission, unprovoked and without any warning, led to this country entering into World War II. The photograph above shows the memorial above where the USS Arizona sank on that day.
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!
November, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, is the last full month of the autumn season. Generally, throughout most of the hemisphere, it isn’t a usual time where the outdoor temperature is exactly conducive to being bare outside. However, with the variances that accompany local weather, sometimes during November there are days when the daytime temperatures are remarkably moderate and we’re able to enjoy ourselves in nature while completely clothes-free!
The first Sunday in November, (this year, November 3) annually, marks the end of Daylight Savings Time (DST) and the return to standard time in the USA. This timing event heralds the end to the seasonal adjustment for more daylight hours and returns us to the barren sequence of timing that brings us to a time of winter. The colder outdoor temperatures encourage the majority of us to spend more time inside with the coziness of warmth.
In honor of Halloween being the very last day of the month of October, it is only fitting to observe the occasion with a nice body painted pair of buttocks with a pumpkin face! In this instance, it sort of incorporates the celebration of both the Bottom’s-Up! feature of ReNude Pride and the Halloween event. It absolutely makes my job easier combining the two!
This is another Friday, the fourth, during 2019 GLBTQ Bare History Month. The post today is the last one in this series for this annual celebration. The heading picture, shown above, features a man in the early days of color photography poolside with his beach ball. Judging from the man’s hairstyle, the picture dates from the middle 1960’s. There is no information of the photographer.
One of the most unexplored topics of our community history is the growth and development of bare (naked, nude) culture within the modern GLBTQ movement. For far too long, we bare practitioners (naturists or nudists) have been ignored and overlooked by the overwhelming majority of our society. The purpose of this posting here is to offer a brief and minimal accounting of our heritage.
