Fremont Solstice Parade, Saturday, June 18, 2005

c Alan Berner / The Seattle Times Posted by Hello

The description that went along with this picture in the Seattle Times went "Nudity has become so old hat at the festival that a woman wearing just a purse and shoes hardly draws a glance."

Mmmmmm . . . is Seattle finally changing. Last week the WNBR and cops behaved . . . this week the Fremont parade and nudity was an expected, accepted and integral part of the festival.

I went down there. Almost didn't because there must have been close to a 100,000 people enmasse' wandering around having a great time. And like the scene of this nude woman walking nonchalantly down the street, everything was copacetic. It was cool and I didn't see anyone getting upset or bothered by the nudity.

Everyone was behaved as well and we had representatives from several nude clubs and resorts answering questions and enticing people to at least give the nudist lifestyle a chance. I thought it was very positive. My only regret was that I didn't have the opportunity to go at it nude like so many others . . . but next year for sure.
