Love, nudity and the Olympics

Today is Valentines Day – a perfect day to spread the message of love and compassion to the Olympics fans and media.

Special thanks go out to our friends Genny and Michelle for organizing this great event!

This is by far the funnest and most positive demo we’ve had so far during the Olympics.  Activists stood naked on top of the steps of the Art Gallery while chanting “make love, not fur”, “love in, fur out” and “we’d rather go naked than wear fur”.

We had such a positive reception from the crowd, that some even took off their clothes to join in on the fun.  Media was everywhere taking photos and videos of us.  Even Russian Television couldn’t resist covering our little love fest.

Silly people, fur belongs to animals!

Wow, I wanna be fur free and naked when I grow up

My turn to get a photo taken with the naked guy!

We stood naked on the steps  of the Art Gallery for nearly two hours getting photos taken with tourists.  Men, women, teens, parents with children all wanted photos with us. Even a few women wearing fur a photo.  The best part is that along with the photo they took away a positive education regarding the cruelty of their fashion choice.

This was a very successful demo. Even the weather cooperated.  I think it was the warmest winter day ever!

Don’t worry if you missed today’s little demo. We’re not done getting naked for the tourists and cameras just yet.  There will be more skin to see in the weeks to come.

Thanks also to Lola Fantastic for making the “Nothing Says I Love You Like Something Dead” signs and spontaneously getting naked, and thanks to you, of course.
