gonatural Magazine December Issue #247 - Deb's beach life

Giddy up! Another year comes to a close as we head into summer. Our December summer New Zealand’s gonatural magazine is packed full!

In a time when newspapers and magazines are closing, we are heading into out 63rd year of continuous publication. This is an achievement the entire naturist community should be proud of. You might like to read a recent interview I had with StopPress who celebrate long-running publications that have managed to transition into the digital world without losing integrity.

I often get asked why the mere act of being naked in a shared social environment is such a big deal. Look no further than our cover story. You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make her drink, so goes the old proverb. Deborah took the plunge (literally) sharing her love of horses and writing and gave herself permission to try something she’d never dreamed of: stripping away her fears and her clothes, and allowed me to photograph the experience to share it with our readers. There’s something raw, organic and beautiful riding a horse bareback with no saddle.

This year’s annual naturist festival and rally will take the form of a bus tour, taking in four naturist clubs around the North Island along the way. I received some touching feedback about Polly Fairbrother’s life in the September magazine. It was a powerful, sad, unique but important story to share.

This issue we launch the 2019 gonatural photo competition with the theme of our summer campaign Love the Skin You’re In. You have until March to send in your photos, so get snapping - anyone can enter!
