Naked Age


Jul 13, 2022

This episode of Naked Age explores the parallel paths of two nudist pioneers whose stories take place over seventy years apart. First we look at Ray Connett, an influential figure of early Canadian nudism who helped establish that country’s first national nudist organization. Then we meet Gerardo Cisneros, a Mexican nudism advocate whose hard work and clever initiative has helped bring a budding Mexican nudist movement into full bloom.
