Young Naturists America Response to AANR

Dec 27, 2010, 13:00 ET from Young Naturists & Nudists America

NEW YORK, Dec. 27, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- (RPRN) -- Young Naturists & Nudists America was founded to promote the naturist movement and through this movement, body acceptance, especially among the 18-35 generation. Despite what our name might imply, we don't have an age limit, and we accept all people regardless of race, body jewellery, sexual orientation, single or not . We know about other young nudist groups, such as Vita Nuda; we've even been involved with Vita Nuda in Florida, but recognized its lack of presence in the northeast since its inception. So it was time to take it up a notch and do our own thing, while being open to collaboration with other groups.

We contacted AANR through different avenues, but they didn't respond. So we put out a press release and at last got some attention. For the record, we weren't looking for cheap headlines or to knock the AANR, but rather to make them take notice of the younger people in the movement and the role that they have / should play. Furthermore, it is easy to have a following in places like Florida, but not to create something in the Northeast. With the funding that large organizations have, why do 3 young people need to invest all their savings and most of their time to create something while the largest organization does not even offer any recognition, let alone support?

America and the naturist movement are both capitalists, so money is the goal for most of them. We are one of the only groups we know of that is willing to lose time and money for the cause. Just like any company or movement, YNA will need to find a way to make some money as well; otherwise we won't be able to survive, but that is not  our main goal. If the AANR is here to represent the different clubs then they are wise to keep out of many controversial issues; but if they are to be "our" representatives then they must get off the sidelines and take action. For example, instead of remaining silent about body art -- it would have made more sense to come out strongly against discrimination of any kind and issue a strong statement.

Lastly, we welcome criticism, ideas and opinions so if anyone has any issue with YNA or its members then please try and contact us directly first rather than attacking us from afar.

Since the start of all this chatter AANR has emailed us, apologized for miscommunication and posted a mention about our upcoming Nude Year's Eve on their site, so for that we want to thank them. We hope to establish a positive line of communication from here on out and possibly some collaboration in the future.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Nudiarist for his devotion to the cause and wonderful blog. Keep up the good work!
