Naked truth revealed about gathering of 30 nude women in Perth's CBD

Commuters in central Perth were taken aback on Tuesday afternoon when a group of 30 stark naked women gathered near a busy intersection. 

The group converged in heart of the city on St Georges Terrace during peak hour, sending social media users into a frenzy and prompting many theories online.

However, it was soon revealed the women were participating in an art project to promote body positivity and female empowerment by photographer Lauren Crooke.

Ms. Crooke told Nadia Mitsopoulos on ABC Radio Perth the nude run was an attempt to "create beautiful artwork" but also make a political statement.

"We do group nude shoots around Western Australia," she said. 

"We raise money for women's charities, help women who are attending feel really powerful and take back their bodies. I also get to create work for me as an artist."

Ms. Crooke said the inner-city shoot took the idea to a "different level".

She said they had made requests of several private organizations to host the women and do the shoot on their premises. 

"We were declined repeatedly, by I guess, the men in suits who didn't want to be associated with our artwork, and what we were doing when we tried to do it at more private venues," she said. Read more

Bates Director Records Video For Internet Project

Last January, Gary Mussell, past president of AANR-West was interviewed by videographer Jamie Cawelti in his capacity as Director of Friends of Bates Beach near Santa Barbara, California. 

This interview is now available on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/vxZlO3qPhFs.

The 55-minute discussion covers a wide range of topics related to social nudity in general, the free beach movement, and issues related to maintaining positive relationships between beachgoers, law enforcement and local politicians who are loathed to make nude beaches officially legal.

Mussell discusses the group’s fifteen-year effort to reach a verbal agreement with officials to set aside a clothing-optional section of the beach. The interview covers the group’s $2 bill marketing campaign that gave them visibility with local businesses, their participation in the local chamber of commerce and beach cleanup days and having an information booth at community events and festivals.

Eventually, the interview will be part of a longer documentary Jamie is putting together about nude beaches and body acceptance. See more

Lupin Bare-to-Breakers

The Lupin Bare-to-Breakers Bus Rides again! We will be heading to downtown San Francisco early in the morning of Sunday, May 15, to participate in the 2022 Bay-to-Breakers run. The cost is $45 per person.

The race starts at 8 am, so we will leave Lupin sometime around 6:30 am to make sure to have enough time. However, anyone who is not running the actual race course is probably in one of the carrels that won't leave until 8:30 or after. Expected time of arrival back at Lupin will be after noon but before 2 pm. That will give us a little time to enjoy the after-race festivities, but still get back to Lupin for a great rest of the afternoon.

Hope to see you there!

Creek County is home to the largest nudist park in Oklahoma

By Michelle Linn, FOX23 News

DEPEW, Okla. — Clothing-optional: Oaklake Trails Naturist Park boasts that it the largest, family-friendly nudist resort in Oklahoma and one of the largest in the country, with its several hundred members living on more than 400 acres.

The park offers swimming, hiking, camping, Frisbee golf and almost any other outdoor activity... all things you are free to do free of clothes.

“Nudity doesn’t have to be sexual. Nudity is the body that our creator gave us and there’s not a reason to be ashamed of it and it’s unfortunate that people tie sex to that gift,” resident and chairperson at Oaklake Trails, Diana McCalment, explained.

McCalment and her husband Ray are among the 60 residents who live at Oaklake full time.

“It’s just freeing! When we have to be in the textile world, we can’t wait to come home and shed our clothes and just feel wonderful,” Rendy Garello, another resident, said.

The common feeling at this park: no judgement.

“They know they will never ever be judged because of their bodies. People here care about who you are, not how you look, and that’s a rare gift in today’s society that we treasure,” McCalment says.

That means on cooler days you may see the residents in clothes. The park is not solely about nudity, its about being free and comfortable, however that may look. Read more
