Nudist opportunities in Europe

Earlier this year, a nudist restaurant opened in London.  The Bunyadi opened in early June and had 40,000 people on its waiting list when it opened.  The name of the restaurant is The Bunyadi, which mean fundamental in Hindi.  A jounalist’s first nudist experience is well described in http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/15/foodanddrink/what-its-like-in-naked-restaurant-bunyadi-london-food/

While in another European capitol across the chanel, there are plans to open a nudist park in the city of Paris.  http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/27/europe/paris-nudist-park/

So my question is, what can we do to encourage these kind of ventures in the Northwest?

    Au Naturel: the Nude in the 21st Century

    Clatsop Community College presents our eleventh annual international juried exhibition, Au Naturel: the Nude in the 21st Century, to be held January 26 – March 16, 2017 in the Royal Nebeker Art Gallery.  Au Naturel: The Nude in the 21st Century is an international juried competition hosted annually by the Clatsop Community College Royal Nebeker Art Gallery in Astoria, Oregon, with a focus on the time-honored tradition of the nude human figure, an art form that continues to inspire and challenge many artists today as one of the most potentially rewarding subjects to explore. This exhibit represents a wide range of interpretations of the human figure from representational to abstract, and is open to all artists from around the world working in any drawing, painting, and printmaking media in which the handmade mark is employed as the primary means of image-making.

    2017 Exhibit Competition Guidelines & Entry Information REQUIREMENTS:

    Media

    Total Media – Minimum: 3, Maximum: 15

    From the President’s Desk

    “It was a cold and rainy night…” is how the NW Board Meeting weekend began.  A good time to be indoors in the warm and sunny company of so many positive people!  We had an excellent meeting and some highlights would include updates from Government Affairs and hopes for training and events to be scheduled.  We passed a positive budget for the region that includes such things as the Folk Life Celebration over Memorial Day in Seattle.  A quarter of a million people come through the gates and we have another opportunity to interact with many of them.  It would be a great opportunity for club members to come meet the public and express just why we enjoy being in social nudism.  I am eager to help individuals “come out” as nudists because the very best way we will grow is personal contacts and telling our story.

    Another major accomplishment this weekend is revamping the process for funding our Northwest Conventions.  The details are still being written into the Procedure Manual along with a new convention contract that will make it easier to host a convention, with less paperwork, and potentially more income to the club hosting the event.  This is such a great way to show off your club and facilities.  Earlier in the year, the $7 convention fee was eliminated, which has been a sticking point for club members who work to help welcome the Northwest to their club, and all board members pay ground fees without waivers, which will bring the hosting club more income.  All in all it appears to be a win win for our clubs and my hopes are that there will be a line of clubs wanting to host the annual convention.

        From the President’s Desk

        Our Fall Board Meeting is rapidly approaching and I look forward to seeing many of you.  We have lots of things going on and it’s increasingly important to stay close and connected.  We all have our differences, evident by the upcoming election which is not on the weekend agenda!  Take a few days away from the onslaught of news and enjoy Sun Meadow Resort.  Be sure to call (208)686-8686 for reservations.  I’m sure we’ll have room for YOU.
         

        Arrest Threatened for Breast Feeding in Public

        A mother was threatened with arrest for indecent arrest because she was breast feeding in a Piggly Wiggly Grocery Store in Columbus, GA, even after she reminded the officer that she’s legally allowed to breastfeed in public.  After the event, the sheriff’s department did apologize for the incident.

        Support Top-Freedom in Maryland 

        We have been asked to lend our support to the top-freedom efforts of Maryland Barechestedness Advocate Chelsea Covington. She has succeeded in getting the Maryland Attorney General’s (AG) Office to accept public comment on the issue.  
        This is a gender equality issue. Men fought for the right to be barechested in 1936, and it was a hard fought issue. Our society was not ready to see men bare-chested but men pushed the envelope and now it is not an issue. It seems that almost a century after women won the right to vote we can help support this effort to let them take their tops off too if they choose.
        As nudists we know the issue usually comes down to intent and whether the reason for nudity, or in this case a bare chest, is sexual in nature or simple nudity. We need to maintain a professional and respectful tone and let the AG know we support Maryland with our tax dollars and want to be able to enjoy “The Free State” by being top free. To be fair Maryland is also the “Old Line State” but the time for that nickname has passed!
        As Chelsea stated in her request to AANR, ‘(We need)…local support, specifically from women and girls and non-binaries, or parents of girls, would be very, very helpful. Women sharing why this is important to them personally carries a lot of weight when it comes to the “why” part of the equation, that this is not about being sexual, this is about being… empowered, free, comfortable, breastfeeding, overcoming body shame — whatever applies to that specific person. But with that said, women who have gone publicly bare-chested elsewhere or been prevented from doing so will carry weight too, a lot of weight actually. They will need to hear that this is important to women.’
        Chelsea is asking us to email Adam Snyder of the Attorney General’s Office using a subject line that will standout in his email. I feel ‘Breasts are gender neutral’ would meet that desire. Our issue is nondiscrimination based on gender. Breasts aren’t the issue, perception of nudity as being sexual is the problem. Write to Mr. Snyder at the address below. Let him know you support women’s right to be top free in any situation where a man can legally do the same.

          Well, is everyone enjoying the political races this year?!? You can’t avoid it so you might as well pay attention and join in. I feel that we are somewhat sheltered here in a low population state in national elections. Our few votes aren’t as coveted as maybe California or Texas. But we still have something to
          say, don’t we?

          As nudists we may look at things just a bit differently. What does a nudist look for in a political candidate?

          • respect for individual choices, e.g. nudist v. textile
          • keeping public lands open for all, e.g. recreating nude in a national forest
          • equal treatment of men and women e.g. top free for all

          No, we’re probably not going to see the US President at an AANR convention (but wouldn’t that be something?!?!) but does he/she support personal freedom of expression?

          Most important is that you are registered and that you DO VOTE!!!! Absentee voting is sure convenient, especially since you can do it nude!!!! But traditional voting at the polls has a lot to be said for it, too. I feel it makes a statement that, yes, there you are  in public expressing your opinion on very important matters. And I’m not just talking about national elections because often your  local elections can affect your daily lives even more closely.
          Remember when certain counties were trying to adopt anti-nudity ordinances? Judges, county commissioners, those that sit on the PSC board all make decisions that affect our lives as nudists.  Though it may be boring it can potentially be very important to  us all!

          So ………. On November 8th, are you going to be able to say that you made the best choices possible?

          Montana Mama,
          who is NOT running for any political office

            Oregon Clothing Optional Beach Cleanups 

            These legally clothing optional beaches are near Portland.  We have a commitment to two beach cleanups at each beach each year.  Please come and help fulfill this commitment, while having a lot of fun.

            The final 2016 Oregon nude beach clean-ups will be on September 24 and 25.  Weather is supposed to be in the 70s Saturday and higher 70s or low 80s Sunday.  The Saturday, September 24 one will be at 10:00 a.m. at Rooster Rock State Park.  This is a clothing optional event, if you are cleaning in the nude area. It is suggested that you wear shoes and bring sun screen. Hats are also recommended if it is very bright.  Bring work gloves if you have them.  All tools and clean-up bags will be furnished.  We will be working with the Rooster Rock park staff. The Park Ranger Supervisor will have a list of projects that includes light to heavy work. Volunteers do not have to pay the day use fee.  Tell the person in the registration booth (if manned) that you are there for the clean-up. When registering, you will receive a card to put in your window.  Meet at the east end of the parking lot near the restrooms.   This should not last longer than around three hours, and will be followed by a hot dog barbeque.  AANR-NW will provide cold water, sugar free lemonade, hot dogs, buns and trimmings and some dessert snacks.   Please do not  leave any items visible in your car. The only restrooms accessible from the nude beach are located near the parking area.
             
            Sunday, September 25 – Sauvie Island-Collins Beach – clean-up at 1:00 p.m. – A parking pass is usually required and can normally be purchased at the store or deli after crossing the bridge to the island.  SOLVE again was able to get us some free day-of-event passes for those that volunteer. Restrooms are close and located in the parking area. We will concentrate our efforts on the gravel road parking area and litter sweeps of the beach area. Meet on the beach near opening marked #3 (second clothing optional opening).   A hot dog barbeque and potluck will be held at around 3:30 p.m.  Contact publiclands@aanr-nw.org  for further details on these events and on how to get a Collins Beach parking pass.

              Eastside News Readers’ Choice Award – Correction

              Last Week, the Web Address for the Eastside News Readers’ Choice Awards that was published for the The Eastside News was incorrect.  The correct address for voting for Tiger Mountain Family Nudist Park is http://www.theeastside.news/vote .  Their category is “Fun Things to Do”/”Local Attraction”.   Please visit their site and show the east side of Seattle how popular Nudism is and how serviing Nudists is good for business.  For those of you that tried to vote last week, please accept our apology and try again.The Readers’ Choice  competition runs until October 9th.

              Thank you to all for pointing out this editorial error.

                  From the President’s Desk

                  The big Labor Day weekend came and passed so quickly this year!  I know the Northwest clubs had a variety of amazing events and that for many, this marks an “official” end of the season, although activities continue.  Please send your activity schedule to the NW Calendar.  I think it’s important to show that our clubs are active all year.  I already know of Thanksgiving and Christmas parties planned, but some clubs are looking at polar plunges, clothing and toy drives and blood donations.  These are all things that can keep us active throughout the year.  Kathy and I plan to be “Snowbirds” this year.  After our October events at Kaniksu, we are moving our Winnebago south to Sun Meadow, at least 70 miles south.

                    Nudity is offense.  Napalm isn’t?  Social Protest forces Facebook to Back Down. 

                    It took a social media protest, including the prime minister of Norway Erna Solbery, but Facebook finally backed down. The Norwegian daily Afenposten had posted a story including the iconic picture of Phan Thi Kim Phuc,  a nine year old trying to escape a horrifying napalm attack.   Facebook had removed the picture and all commentary about it to “protect” us from the nudism.  Not the horror of war.  Not the horror of napalm.  But because of the horror of nudity.  This photo was instrumental in the 1970’s in changing the discussion about the Vietnam war.  Because of its historical significance, a large protest was mounted and Facebook was forced to change its decision today.  Newspapers are finding that they have come to depend on Facebook to distribute their content.  Thus our news is being censored by a company that feels it must protect us from nudity.

                      Nudes hit the Magazine Racks

                      Two mainstream magazines have nude photo shoots in their newest issues this month.  In Weight Watchers (at least in the UK), six women bared all to show off their weight loss success as told in the Mirror. An even more positive article tells how five women on England’s Olympic Rugby Team posed nude in Women’s Health Magazine to celebrate their bodies.  Both articles come from England and show women comfortable with their bodies.  The difference between the articles is that in one, the women felt they needed to change their bodies before they could be seen nude.

                                From Dave’s Desk

                                 
                                This has been an unbelievable summer and school is about to begin.  Somehow, I’m not finished with summer!  My visits to Oklahoma and Oak Lake Trails, and clubs in the Northwest have been wonderful.  I met so many nice people at Mountaindale and The Willamettans and at both we joined in the Electric Slide.  It’s a great example of how much fun we have when we work together.  It’s a blast.  Now I know many of us are looking toward the cooler months but these are often the most beautiful in the Northwest.  Enjoy the sunny days and crisp nights.  And please, call or email me with your ideas and concerns for the Northwest Region.  We’re in this together and need to GROW.
                                 

                                The Nudist’s Bill of Privileges

                                 
                                There is a document called the Nudist Bill of RIghts that can be found on the AANR site.  It has a wonderful list of rights that we would love to have.  However, to believe that we, as nudists, will always have these rights would be overconfident. These are privileges that we currently have in some parts of the country; we certainly want to protect them.  In order to protect these rights, we must be vigilant.  We must watch what is happening in the courts and in social media.  If you see threats to them, it is imperative that you call the AANR office or send email to gat@aanr-nw.org.  It is much better to over report.  If you have any doubt that there is a problem, please report the problem.  It is much better to have 10 reports of a problem than no reports.
