News From "The Nak'd Truth" Reality TV Show


Featured above is a promotional photograph depicting the cast of "The Nak'd Truth," a new reality TV show currently filming at Caliente Nudist Resort and Spa located in Land O'Lakes, Florida (near Tampa). The show focuses on a cast, none with any prior naturist/nudist experience, as they live and work naked, 24/7, for a total of thirty days at the resort.

Tryouts for the show were held late this past Fall, 2010. The final selection was publicly announced in December, 2010. Each cast member was chosen based on their respective strong personality, unique background and sex appeal. The full production schedule began this month. Broadcast rights for the show are in negotiation between the producers and five cable TV networks. The series is expected to air later this year.

Previous articles concerning this production were published on this site during the last three months of 2010. Reference: Nudity Comes To Reality TV (Tuesday, October 19, 2010); "The Nak'd Truth" Update (Yuesday, November 16, 2010); and "The Nak'd Truth" Cast Selected (Monday, December 13, 2010).

S'Naked Time!


Once again, it's that time of year. The season to get s'naked (snow+naked=s'naked). The opportunity to shed those bulky and cumbersome winter garments and and frolic nude in the winter elements. If you haven't already tried this, I highly recommend that you do so at least once in your lifetime. You may be pleasantly surprised as to how much fun you'll enjoy.

This isn't a current photograph here. It was made during my third s'naked excursion in February, 2010. I'd lost my s'naked virginity just several weeks before this in my initial foray into s'nudity. By the time of this picture, I was already becoming a s'naked practitioner. I actually worked my way up to my record of 25 minutes of s'nudism at any one time.

Today, here in the Washington, DC, metroplolitan area, we're in the midst of a major winter weather event. That's what prompted me to recall my s'nudist past. What's falling here at the moment is a heavy, wet snow. Experience has taught me this isn't the best s'nudity. A dry, powdery snow is conducive and better for this activity. We'll see if the precipitation pattern changes throughout the night.

One additional piece of advice: don't over-expose yourself when attempting s'nudity for the first time. Five to seven minutes of nakedness in snow is the maximum. Gradually increase your exposure (no pun intended) time in small increments. Trust me, blue balls (testcles) and frostbite aren't attractive on anyone. Don't be alarmed if some shrinkage occurs in your balls and cock. It's only a natural reaction. After all, it's cold outside, my brothers!

Again, I encourage all of you to strip in the snow and have your own s'naked moment. It's both exhilarating and invigorating! It also may provide some interesting fringe benefits. This past January, during my initial s'naked adventure, is when I met my man-of-interest!

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Nude Challenge

The Constitution of the Dominion of Canada is being challenged today as a prominent defense attorney argues that laws prohiting public nudity infringe upon the the rights of his client. The attorney, Clayton Ruby, offered that the law forbidding nudity in public places or on private property within public view are vague and should be revised or removed. He also proposes that the Criminal Code be updated.

The Federation Of Canadian Nudists deems these existing laws as archaic. According to a press release, the laws define nudity as indecent and intended to cause harm to those who witness it (nudity). This isn't always true in a majority of instances.

Attorney Ruby's client, Brian Coldin, is a nudist resort operator in Bracebridge, Ontario Province. Coldin has been arrested many times for public nudity the lastest charges stemming from driving nude in the drive-throughs at several fast-food restaurants. Ruby argued last fall, when the trial began, that his client wasn't completely nude in any of the incidents as he was at least wearing sandals. He also countered that Coldin, a Christian nudist, was not acting in a prurient or indecent manner.

The court is expected to spend most of today dealing with the constitutional challenge. The judge is expected to render a decision in writing on a later date.

Looks like our fellow naturists in Canada may have an opportunity to change their lives and to make history. Let's wish them all the best in this endeavor.

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Remedy For Winter Doldrums


For us queer naturists/nudists, winter can be a depressing and dull season of the year. Especially for those of us who reside in the Northern Hemisphere where the days are short and the nights are long. We're restricted by the frigid temperatures outdoors and the too often presence of ice and snow. Late January through the middle of February are particularly rough as this is the period often known as the dead-of-winter, when all hope of any weather change seems lost and remote. A time when the only conversation people are able to offer appears to be: Is it cold enough for you?

WTF? What the hell do you mean? I'm buried under layers of clothing with coat, hat, scarf and gloves, just like you, and you have the audacity to ask me that question? I want to respond with an upraised middle finger (yes, it means the same in American Sign Language (ASL) as it does in the popular culture. Not only is it cold enough for me! It is also too fucking cold for me or are you an idiot?

However, I contain my impulse and temper. We queer naturists/nudists are a creative and resourceful community. We know how to amuse and entertain ourselves despite what Mother Nature casts our way. We have indoor nude socials to occupy our time. We plan nakations to warmer climates to break the monotony of winter. Hell, some of us brave the drafty performance venues and participate in amateur nude theatrical performances and naked athletic competitions.

Then there are those within our midst who take advantage of modern conveniences such as hot tubs, indoor pools and jacuzzis to ease our boredom. Some of our stout-hearted brothers (yours truly, included) indulge in s'naked events activities in order to survive the drudgery. As the gay nudecentric culture, we manage to muddle through and thrive! After all, nudity, like the cold weather, has been around for centuries.

There are a variety of remedies for the winter doldrums available for our same gender loving nudecentric folk. We just need to be inventive for those that both spark and suit our interests. If not s'naked, anyone want to try a hand of nude poker?

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

About Me: Why DQN? (Repost From January 19, 2010; First Blog Post)


A new year and a new beginning. So why not another new adventure? Creating my own independent blog. I'm not new to blogging, I've blogged and co-authored on several other sites. However, this experience is new, exciting and a little intimidating. A creative and a growth challenge. Also, another reason to exercise that organ that is stored inside my cranium! So, here goes!


For starters, Why DQN? Well, it's a small matter of self-identification. It's simply how I see myself in this huge complex world in which we live. First, D = Deaf. I am a Deaf man struggling to exist in a primarily hearing universe. Believe it or not, my Deafness does affect my worldview and how my world views me. I am culturally Deaf, so that is why the "d" in Deaf is capitalized.


Secondly, Q = Queer. I am a Queer/Same Gender Loving/Gay man struggling to survive in a primarily heterosexual society. My sexual orientation does impact my perspective on some issues and trust, it absolutely has a tremendous influence on how most of society, as a whole, perceives me! Personally, I prefer the identity of same gender loving (SGL). However, I use queer because initially, it was a pejorative term used to degrade that, through ownership, I can use to empower me and disempower those who wish to harm.


Thirdly, N = naturist/nudist. I am a man who prefers, enjoys and thrives living textile-free (without clothes/clothing) in a predominantly textile environment. My nudity does sway how I interpret certain situations and it is very influential in how the broader culture judges me. As a naked man, however, these judgments don't prevent me from living naturally and honestly.


Finally, Northern Virginia is where this naked, queer, Deaf man resides with his three marginalised communities. Specifically: Arlington, Virginia. Home of The Pentagon and of Arlington Cemetery, where the victims of decisions made inside The Pentagon are finally laid to rest.


This concludes my initial introduction of myself through explaining the title of this blog. Wow! The first step wasn't that difficult! I'll probably return for more! Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Anniversary Treats


A photographer with camera, a solo nude, a duo nude, a trio nude. A nude kiss and anniversary bliss!

And then there's three shaved heads, all in one row. It's paradise!

Anniversary Retrospective

Tomorrow, January 19, 2011, marks the one year anniversary of my publishing here at DQN In Northern Virginia on Blogger.com. Personally, it's difficult to believe that it's been a full year since I started. I remember posting my first entry just like it was yesterday. I recall the feelings of excitement, nervousness and uncertainty as I wrote my the initial article. I wasn't sure exactly where all this would lead.

I took the plunge and proceded. I knew this was a project that I wanted to attempt. The past year offered many challenges and successes, consequences and rewards. It wasn't always easy and at times I had my doubts. There were those moments when I asked myself: Why? More than once I wondered: What next? But, I knew that I had to continue, at least, for another day.

Now, one day shy of a full year, I still experience those same emotions as I draft this entry. Each article assumes a life all its' own and I'm never sure of the final destination. Regardless of the amount of preparation, there remains a surprise around every corner. However, one thing I have learned from this opportunity is that at the end of each day, I have a feeling of accomplishment and pride. Somehow, I managed to survive.

I am grateful to all of you for your feedback, support and understanding. Without you, I never would find the courage to continue. Thank you for sharing this journey into the unknown with me. Alone, this day would not be possible nor real. I promise to you that I will try my best not to disappoint you in 2011. All that I request in return is your continued patience.

There are several anniversary specials planned for the remainder of this week. I hope they will not disappoint any of you. Once again, I appreciate your accompanying me along this path.

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

My Private Blog

I've mentioned this here in passing before; during my winter holiday break, I used the time to create a new blog: GAY-NUDIST PHOTOBLOG: A Nudecentric Journal. You can access it by looking in the upper left-hand side of your monitor screen and clicking on the link. I have no plans on ending publishing here at DQN In Northern Virginia. I'm enjoying all of you here too much for that drastic step!

The purpose of the new one was to serve as a companion to this one. A place to express more intimate and personal experiences and thoughts that perhaps aren't always appropriate in this venue. As I began writing there, the concept evolved into making it a private rather than public publication. There are two primary reasons behind this decision. The first issue concerns privacy. If I'm sharing personal details I'd prefer it in a more secure environment than provided here. This idea is a two-way street as I want all readers to feel that they are free to comment in a protected site, also.

The second reason involves direction. Privacy invites an increase of candor and openess that is not necessarily present here. The focus is on the desires, emotions and fantasies as opposed to the general appeal when communicating to a broader audience. It paves the way for a candid exchange and expression of feelings that otherwise may remain hidden and unacknowledged. Sometimes, we just need to see it in print in order to recognize it as real and valid.

The original plan was to make the GAY-NUDIST blog private this weekend. That simply isn't possible. The transition date is now February 1, 2011. If you haven't already done so, check out the blog and see if it is of interest to you. Bear in mind that as of this moment in time, it isn't a private site. If you're interested in being a part of this project, then carefully read the current entry, "Changing," posted today, and follow the simple instruction listed therein. There are no finances involved.

As always, I appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for all of your love and support! Best wishes for all of 2011 and beyond!

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Nude Gardeners: Costa Rica Wants You!

That's right! If you're a nude gardener and enjoy tropical climates, then this might be of interest to you. The GoNudeCostaRica Resort, and its' facility, the Hotel Desire, are seeking nude gardeners to help landscape the six estate acres of their property leading up to World Nude Gardening Day, scheduled May 14, 2011. The resort is located on the foothills of the San Jose Valley halfway between the Pacific and Caribbean coasts of this Central American nation.





The amenities include pools, jacuzzi, hot tubs, tennis, golf, volleyball, hotel, restaurants and bars. One day excurions are possible (although clothing is required) to nearby volcanoes, rainforest, white water rafting and coffee plantations. Nude beaches are accessible on either of the two coasts.

Be advised this is a nudist resort; it isn't exclusively gay. For additional information on World Nude Gardening Day at this facility, go to: www.gonudecostarica.com or call 1-866-771-7778/011-506-2643-1005.

No Pants On Subway


This past Sunday, January 9, was the date of the No Pants Subway Ride held in more than twenty-four countries around the world. Organized by Improv Everywhere, an internet prank site, the event gathered participants in more than 50 cities globally who rode their respective subway systems in their underwear. In New York City alone, an estimated 3,500 participated by braving near-freezing temperatures with bare legs.

I do apologize to all of you, This isn't a nudecentric entry. But, if one starts with the removal of pants, who knows what comes off next? That alone is some food-for-thought! The future here is unlinited! Exactly how far can this go? Where does this concept lead us? Live nudes on metropolitan public transportation? For me, at least, it seems not such a bad idea.

Evidently, a bored populace needs something to relieve the drudgery of urban life after the excitement of the holiday season. Now, perhaps we could really spice things up by having a Nude Subway Ride Day. That would really garner some attention and perhaps triple subway ridership just with the voyeurs alone!

Nudists braving near-freezing temperatures in order to participate in an all-naked subway ride is more of a feat than those wearing underwear!

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

R & B Artist Omarion Comes Out As Bi


Omari Ishmael Grandberry, also known as Omarion, formerly of the boy-band, B2K, announced late last week that he is a bisexual man. The media release, issued through his publicist, was in response to a social networking notice posted by fellow-bandmember Raz-B, that the now solo artist is gay. For a number of years, both performers have been rumored to be same gender loving. Omarion put the rumors to rest through his announcement.

Mr. Grandberry's statement read: "I pride myself in being an honest, God-fearing, respectful man. I have kept my personal life private and wanted to keep it that way. Unfortunately, other's are interested in profiting from my anguish; so before they can do that, I will clarify things. I am not at all what certain band members are trying to paint me as, I am however a respectable, mature, proud bisexual man"

The artist was born on Novemeber 12, 1984, and grew up in Los Angeles. His career began in the early 2000s with B2K and when they parted ways in 2004, he started his solo act. To date, he has released three albums, O in 2005, 21 in 2006 and Ollusion in 2010. In 2007, he and Bow Wow (featured in two pictures here), collaborated on an album, Face Off.







In 2005, Mr. Grandberry won the BET Awards category as Best New Artist. He currently resides in Los Angeles and is working on his fourth solo album.

I admire this talented performer for taking the bull-by-the-horns and standing proud as who he is. He is one of the few male singers to take this bold move before his career is over. I respect his courage and the dignity and honesty of his official announcement.

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

NOTE: There are conflicting reports that the original statement released by Omarion is a hoax and that he has not stepped out the closet. There are also charges that the disclaimer information is the false information and that is again coming from his former bandmembers.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: (posted after 9:00 pm here Monday evening, 01-10-11): The controversy surrounding this posting continues with even more reported comments of both veracity and denial from both parties. That's the excact reason I waited until today to publish this article. Personally, I'm opposed to involuntarily outing, so I leave it to each individual reader to sort through this growing conflict.

A Quick Look At 2010


As long as we're still in the first full week of 2011, and the past year remains a recent memory, I'd like to recapture a few events from 2010. From my perspective, there were two major happenings last year that had a dramatic impact on our queer community. The first occurred at the end of the year when both the U. S. Senate and the House of Representatives passed the repeal of the seventeen year old Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy that prohibited GLBT people from serving openly and honestly in the U. S. Armed Forces. Within four days of this historic vote, President Obama signed the instrument of repeal into law. The ban is still in effect until certain procedural details are clarified; but, most importantly, the handwriting is on the wall and its demise is assured.

I think the second feat was the overturn of the Proposition 8 referendum in California. Last summer, Federal Judge Walker ruled the ballot initiative that denied same gender marriage equality unconstitutional. This decision was next sent to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal for review and could reach the Supreme Court where it has the potential to become the law of the land. Judge Walker's ruling was based on sound constitutional law and tradition. By avoiding any consideration of Judeo-Christian arguments, it has legal merits likely to pass muster on all appeal levels.

Personally, there were two milestones in my life that took place in 2010. First and foremost, I met my man-of-interest during the back-to-back blizzards that blanketed this area last February. We both were distant acquaintances but really didn't know each other until we accidently stumbled upon one another in our neighborhood. We have remained an item ever since and in approximately one month will observe our first anniversary. As Cuz pointed out to me, he's the first man that I've been in a relationship with who's shorter than me. Parhaps that will be our lucky omen.

The second 2010 event that affected my life actually was an indirect cause of the first (more on this later). On January 19, 2010, I began this blog here. When I started, I literally had no idea what the hell I was doing and after beginning often wondered if I would last the year. Now, I still don't know what the hell I'm doing, I just know that somehow, I'm doing it better! Whether it's good or not is arguable, I do know that it gets easier over time.

Before I forget, there is one more addition to my 2010 observation. The last week of December, while on holiday with my man-of-interest as we spent time with our respective families, I began a second blog on blogspot. I intend for this one to be a little more intimate than DQN In Northern Virginia. You can link to it by visiting the heading: My Personal Blog on the left side of your monitor screen.

Interesting...


I'm not really sure exactly what this is all about. I know a picture is worth a thousand words, so you can take it from here. He's not homeless, simply naked. So why the sign? Is he also panhandling? Regardless, he is cute. I'd like to know the story behind this photo.


This one is obvious. Someone has been waiting in the back seat of this vehicle for quite a long time. Next time, just pick him up nude to save him the time of having to pull down his jeans! LOL!

Nude Novice Notes: The Gender Mix


For some who are relatively new to social nudity, this situation is the cause of discomfort and embarrassment. It doesn't need to be that way. The remedy is simple. All it takes is awareness, some forethought and mental preparation beforehand to reduce the level of anxiety and tension. Like most new experiences, some awkwardness may remain. However, this is only natural and doesn't need to be a major source of stress.

Arriving at a clothing-optional beach or at a public nudist event, many same gender loving naturists are shocked to discover that there are naked women present. This is particularly true when prior exposure (no pun intended) has been exclusively limited to the gay male environment. Then reality hits like a speeding locomotive as we view our surroundings.

For some, the basic reaction is to cover their genitalia with their hands. Where this may calm your fears for the moment, it isn't a viable solution. It isn't possible to cup your balls and cock in your hands all day and have fun. Plus, you are attracting unwanted attention to yourself.

I have witnessed this scenario many times. We have become so complacent in our queer naturist network that we just forget that the opposite gender also enjoys nudism. I know of several otherwise-nude brothers who actually refused to remove their shorts/swimsuits upon facing this situation. Once, an aquaintance was so horrorfied that he left the beach immediately.

We all have our individual comfort zone that is to be respected. Mixed gender nudity isn't necessarily pleasant for everyone. We make that determination for ourselves. However, with a little thinking and planning ahead, integrated social nudity doesn't have to create trauma and ruin our outing with friends. Initially, we might be nervous; but, like everything else, practice makes perfect. After a while, we may not even notice. Relax and be yourself. Breathe. Remember, most of us are naked here, right?

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Michael Vick Rehabilitated




As a naturist, I have respect for all nature, including animals. As a human, I share most of my species love of dogs. Like almost everyone, I was shocked and disgusted to learn of the cruelty inflicted upon the canine population by the old Michael Vick.

As you may recall, Vick was an up-and-coming NFL star playing with the Atlanta Falcons franchise. His promising career was abruptly cut short when he was charged, convicted and incarcerated for his unusual cruelty to animals and for participating in illegal dog-fighting. Mr. Vick served his time, was released and returned to the NFL, this time for the Philadelphia Eagles.

As part of his parole and probation arrangements, Micheal has been engaged in speaking to inner-city youth about his experience and in encouraging them to make positive and productive choices in their lives. This he has done with a passion that has exceeded his community service requirements. In fact, he has proven to be so effective in delivering his message that the American Humane Society has recently publicly praised his efforts and just before the winter holidays issued a press release stating that the organization feels that the ban on his owning a dog should be lifted.

President Obama took note of this and telephoned the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles, praising their decision to give Mr. Vick a second chance after his imprisonment. Then all hell broke loose. The right-wing media jumped onto the bandwagon criticizing both our President and Michael Vick. One Fox News commentator even went so far as to call for Mr. Vick's execution. Of course, they didn't dare attack the American Humane Society lest they offend some of their own rank-and-file members who own dogs.

My thought on all this controversy is simple because I am of simple mind. I always thought the purpose of our penal system was rehabilitation. If this is the case, then why aren't we all celebrating an obvious and very public instance of true reform with Michael Vick? If the American Humane Society recognizes his exemplary outreach, going beyond the conditions of his parole, then shouldn't we respect that and give him the same? After all, he broke the law, paid his debt to society, returned to freedom and is doing something productive and worthwhile with his life.

The man did his time and was paroled. He is serving as a public role model for youth. Who are we to judge? All of us have some unsavory actions in our past that we are ashamed of and just because we didn't get caught doesn't grant us superior status. Mr. Vick is moving on with his life and we should do likewise.

As for those critics of President Obama because he praised the NFL for giving Michael a second chance, shame on all of you. Our President made a very public gesture of showing gratitude for forgiveness and allowing former inmates a chance to prove themselves. True, he could have done this for a Jane Doe or a John Doe; however, it would not have been nearly as effective nor widely reported. His doing so in this instance serves as a reminder to us all to look beyond past transgressions and offer opportunities to those who are indeed rehabilitated. President Obama is leading by example. That is an indicator of a great leader.

To Mr. Michael Vick, I wish you the best. I know that you are far from perfect, as are we all. However, you learned your lesson and you remained positive. Not many of us have the balls to do that. Oh, by the way, sir! If you're ever interested in exploring nudism, I'll gladly be your personal trainer!

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Nude Year Resolutions


This is the first year that I'm keeping a separate list of Nude Year Resolutions. In the past, I've always had nudecentric goals for myself but these were a part of my general New Year List. For 2011, I decided to change this custom and maintain a different nude agenda. Not that I'm segregating my naturism from my life; I think it will enhance my focus, prevent my general plan from being too overwhelming and allow me to prioritize my nudist objectives from other developmental objectives. As it is a work-in-progress, we'll see how it goes.

One of the items contained on my list is to try at least one new naked activity this calendar year. The possibilities are abundant. I've never before attended a GNI nor an IMEN Gathering. I have registered for several in the past. Both times, an emergency (one family, the other professional) prevented me from participating. Likewise, I've never tried skydiving before (clothed or nude) nor have I ever played softball naked. I'm not big on roller skating/blading so those are additional activities to attempt.

Another project is to expand my circle of naturist friends this year. True, this blog has accomplished that one for 2010. However, for the past two years, my involvement with my fellow queer nudists has been limited to my close friends and family (practically exclusively all Deaf). This was a personal choice as my social schedule was too busy and not permitting me time to devote to building and maintaining a relationship nor enhancing my private life. I have a little more free time now and need to once again expand my social network and meet some different brother nudists.

The final one that I'll mention here has been an ongoing one for me over the past decade. That is to continue to mentor a new nudist brother into our own fraternity. To be available as a resource, guide and friend as they explore and become comfortable in our culture of same gender loving nakedness. To assist them discover themselves and the possibilities open to them as an emerging naturist.

The new year contains many adventures for all of us. Some of these adventures will come as challenges that will produce growth and strength in each of us individually and collectively as a community. I'm hoping a list of nude year resolutions will keep me on task and help make 2011 both happy and productive.

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Welcome 2011!


Happy New Year! May 2011 bring to you the best that life has to offer! I appreciate your support throughout 2010!

Make the new year a NUDE year and step out of those clothes and step into freedom and nudity as often as possible! Rest assured, I'm doing just that right now!

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!
