Hello, My name is Randy and I am a Nudist!
In a way I wish that I had the confidence to introduce myself this way to new people I meet, but maybe sometime down the road. I am not afraid of letting people know that I am a nudist, however I do have some different approaches.
Being in the Vancouver BC area, there is an advantage in that almost everyone knows about Wreck Beach, whether they want to admit to it or not. Most have probably been there at least once, although they never would admit it. I find that there is usually some way to bring Wreck Beach up in a conversation, and then see the person’s reaction. At this point I know whether I can openly tell them I am a nudist, or hold back for some time in the future. I have found that this is a very easy of introducing nudism.
Another fairly successful approach is to talk about “Our Private Membership Campground”, describing the grounds with the 7.5 acre lake, 320 acres of forest, and an 85 foot waterfall. Oh, by the way, did I mention that it is a nudist club?
I have never had a strong negative reaction to letting someone know that I am a nudist. Most people have some questions, and some stay rather quiet. Some outright admit that “I could never do that”. I never push anyone, once they know that I am a nudist I will mention Lake Bronson Club whenever I have a chance, or after an event weekend I will let them know the fun that we had on that weekend.
