Welcome to Naked Age, a nudist history series exploring uncommon stories and profiling unique people who have gone to extraordinary lengths to live a nude life.
I'm your host, Evan Nicks.
Today, we learn about the lives of Jeannette Schuster and Zelda Suplee, two trailblazing figures in American nudism whose vision and determination transformed Sunny Rest Lodge in Pennsylvania into a pivotal hub for nudists across the nation. This is Naked Age.
When reflecting on the pioneers of any movement, do we sufficiently recognize the women who often stand in the shadows of history? Within the nudist movement specifically, women’s roles have been multifaceted and complex. And there exists a striking contrast. The movement's early visuals and narratives often reflected exploitive views of women to sell magazines and propagate their ideas.
Yet within the core of the movement, influential female leaders carved out their own paths, pioneers who defied these norms.
The essence of our story today isn’t just that Jeannette and Zelda Suplee both married J. Reed Suplee. In today’s episode, we’ll explore the captivating lives of two pioneering women in the nudist movement. We'll learn about Jeannette Schuster’s foundational contributions in establishing Sunny Rest Lodge, and how Zelda Suplee, as a nudist advocate, excelled in public relations and played a pivotal role in shaping the movement’s image and reach.
Join us as we uncover the impactful legacies these women carved out within the nudist movement and beyond, right after this. 🚀
