Combating Transexual Discrimination by YNA
Transexual Discrimination is Not Acceptable By YNA Standards!
Transexual Discrimination And The YNA Policy:
Transexual Discrimination – We recently got an email from someone asking if trans* people (see poster for definition) are welcome at Young Naturists America events. The answer is, absolutely! People of any gender identity are welcome at our events and meetups.
We have decided that from this point and moving forward we will not host an event at any nudist club or nudist resorts that practices discrimination based on gender or sexual orientation. If this means that we won’t be able to have events there anymore then we won’t. If this means that we lose support and have to close down then that is what will happen. This is our way of saying enough and standing up against discrimination.
We ask that people stand in solidarity with us and hold your local naturist or nudist clubs to the same standards. If this means that some of us will need to cancel memberships then so be it. Changes happens more quickly if it affects the bottom line!
NOTE: By “gender discrimination,” we are not referring to the practice of nudist clubs or resorts limiting the number of single men that can join. (Nor are we referring to all-male gay resorts.) We understand a club’s desire to maintain gender balance. But if a club bars entry to all transgender people, or all people of any other gender identity, then that is a problem!
While we cant dictate what a club chooses to do, we still have a voice. Please help us impact the world in a positive manner – dont only hold your clubs to a higher standard, we ask that you hold any organization that you support to the same code of conduct. Businesses and organizations need money to survive. If more people take up our philosophy then change will happen.
Don’t forget – It’s All About the Love!
