Friends of Nude Recreation
In addition to our nudist resorts and participating businesses, AANR appreciates the following nudist groups, which also help to promote and protect the nude recreation that we enjoy.
This 501( c )(3) charitable organization is equipped to accept tax deductible gifts. The Foundation helps fund scholarships and research to promote a healthy view of the human body. You can visit their website or download a PDF version of their brochure here.
For over 20 years the library has served as an historical and documentary resource to scholars and nudists.
Beach Education Advocates for Culture, Health, Environment & Safety Foundation Institute, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) federally tax-exempt nonprofit educational corporation. B.E.A.C.H.E.S.'s four concerns for our public beaches are explicit in its name: cultural diversity, public health, environmental conservation, and beach safety.
While AANR is affiliated with a number of clubs in Western Canada through its WCANR Region and Ontario via the AANR Midwest region, the Federation of Canadian Naturists is also extensively working throughout the country to promote nude recreation.
Serving Naturists in Quebec
Gay Naturists International (GNI) began in 1981 as part of The Naturist Society (TNS). In 1993, they became an independent organization. Through their affiliated clubs, they lend a bare hand to any fellow who’s comfortable being gay and naked.
South Florida Free Beaches/Florida Naturist Association, Inc. is an organization advocating for a fair share of public beaches and other suitable public commons for nude recreation in Florida, including the designation of clothing optional areas.
Founded in the 1980s, the Society publishes a magazine four times per year for subscribers and conducts events (“gatherings”) around the country. Often referred to as TNS, its affiliates NEF and NAC help educate and protect.
TANR helps the “business” side of the nude recreation industry with an annual meeting that brings together business and resort owners to share best practices and to learn from speakers providing presentations on a variety of topics. TANR also purchases collective advertising on behalf of its members and its classifieds may be seen regularly in travel publications. AANR serves as the administrative agent for TANR and many of our clubs appear on its roster, which you'll find here.
