AANR Hurricane Relief Fund

MESSAGE FROM THE AANR PRESIDENT

    Any/all donations for the remainder of September will be earmarked for this fund.  Whether you donate by credit card, website or phone, or by sending a check to the AANR office, your contribution will serve only your fellow AANR members.  Please note that contributions to the organization are not deductible for federal income tax purposes as charitable contributions.

   The funds will be kept completely separate from any AANR operating funds and will be distributed on a case by case basis to clubs and members in immediate need.  How much AANR can distribute depends upon you.

As you, I am watching the progress of Hurricane Irma with a broken heart.  The damage already done to AANR clubs and members is devastating, and the forecast is that it will only get worse.  My thoughts are with all of the AANR family that is in the path of the storm.

I personally will be donating $1000 by clicking on www.aanr.com and then on the “donate” tab.  I challenge you to match or exceed that amount.

If you are in need of immediate help after Monday, call 1-800-TRY-NUDE or write try-nude@aanr.com.  AANR will assist you in any way they possibly can.  

Sincerely,

Beverly B. Price

Hour Magazine feature on Turtle Lake Resort

 

nudist-teaser(1)

I have run the Turtle Lake 5K twice now. You are not allowed to take photos there (the article tells of the resort manager grabbing somebody’s phone at poolside and actually tossing it in the pool). I just LOVE this outdoor train set at one corner lot. Now I have a photo I can post. Anyway, no mention of the TLR 5K run in the story, but it is a good overlook of nudist resorts in Michigan.

The author did leave out a second “swinger” resort in Michigan. There are six, but I am told by somebody in mobile home sales that there are a few more private mobile home parks that allow nudity inside, but these are not resorts.

A Safe Space for Women and our Bodies

Freekat2

We live in a world where women’s bodies are constantly either sexualized or dehumanized – or often both. We are not allowed to exist independently of the social (particularly male) gaze. Whether we are leered at and pursued against our will, or we are ignored and dismissed, or we are mocked or ridiculed, there is one thing that is true for almost all women: we are not allowed to live freely in our bodies and our lives. We constantly have to adjust to protect ourselves, to shield ourselves, and to make ourselves less of a target as we go about our daily lives.

We live in a society where girls as young as 5 years old think they’re “too fat.” Girls and women are constantly told that our bodies aren’t “good enough” – in a myriad of profitable ways by a myriad of companies and institutions out for our money…
