WORLD NAKED BIKE RIDE FOR BRISBANE 2013

This is an interview that Danna from Nude Muse magazine did with me about my plans for the World Naked Bike Ride in Brisbane next month.

Thanks Danee!  I had a lot of fun doing the interview, and there could be more in the pipeline where that came from since the webmaster and cameraman David Entz has since told me he is also keen to do some coverage of my own nude group events and get some of his other models to come along to them, several of whom are nudists themselves.

Just waiting to hear back from the Brisbane police and the administrators at QUT Gardens Point with the proposals for the event.  A young couple who came to visit me yesterday told me that the bike path had been closed off due to the floods recently, but I will check it out for myself to see that it's okay to use (hopefully should be if the weather holds up well for the next few weeks at least!).

Hey Dario, in a lot of Nude-Muse interviews, questions about naturism and the naked human body are raised. Do the admins support it or is it more of an "informal" thing?

David is a nudist, and he is also coming to my next Brisbane get together with a few of his models in tow.  He even posted a B&W nude self-portrait photo of himself on his Flickr page recently and said that it was not an easy task for him to do.  I can see why, because artists are the hardest critics of themselves and moreover their work.  But good to see that he got out of his comfort zone and did it for himself.  :)

I noticed your interview has been posted on other websites, one of which drew a comment wondering why the interviewer was nude, but you were not and wondered why.

Hello Ron,

The interview was done in a public place.  Where I live, it is legal for females to be publicly nude, but males have to wear at least a g-string in order to avoid being arrested.  The willful exposure laws here pertain only to the exposure of genitals.

Hope this answers your question.

Interesting.  So whatever women expose are not considered genitals.  Kind of a different twist on things than we have here in the US.  I prefer your version.

I don't know about the law in Wisconsin but it seems that the law in Queensland is the same as it is in the State of Maine, specifying "sexual organs" which, on we women, are internal.  All in all I prefer the situation in Vermont where there is no state law criminalizing simple nudity for either men or women.  I should go try it out this summer.

The important thing to remember in Vermont is that it is legal to be  :423 naked in public  :e4444
but it is illegal to disrobe  :654 in public  :56789


Good interview Dario.  Keep the faith!

Then I guess in Vermont one must disrobe in private before going out in public.

Be careful of where you choose to go nude in Vermont.  It is not all laissez-faire about nudity as you might think: http://www.reuters.com/article/2007/07/18/us-vermont-nude-idUSN1823185120070718

I did not know WNBR originated in Canada. Every now and then we hit a home run!
Very good interview Dario!

Actually, I should correct myself on this: the guy who started the WNBR is from Canada, but he was studying at Berkeley University at the time.  His name is Conrad Schmidt.

Cool we have a celebrity poster. Those rides look like a lot of fun.
