Nudist travelers should boycott homophobic CROATIA
by SUN + Jillian Page
Wednesday Dec 11th, 2013 3:02 PM
CROATIA is a travel destination for naturists --
and also a homophobic population,
as revealed by a recent referendum vote against marriage equality.
Jillian Page, a Canadian naturist blogger, proposes that naturist travelers
boycott Croatia. SUN, a California nudist committee, endorses her proposal.

Nudism/Naturism:
Boycott Croatia?

by Jillian Page.

December 2, 2013.....
................

I wonder how nudists feel about Croatia-
and if the anti-gay vote....
in that country ... would deter them from visiting naturist sites there?

Apparently, Croatia is a mecca for naturists,
with numerous resorts and beaches catering to them.

But how will naturists feel about going to a country
where a large percentage of the population is homophobic?
Will naturists feel safe there?

Would you boycott the country on principle,
whether you are gay or not
— i.e. it’s about equal rights,
and many people who are not gay still think everyone should have equality.

After all, nudists and LGBT people share something in common:
they all face discrimination around the world.

I’ve already expressed my opinion:
I am a naturist
and I will not vacation in Croatia,
on principle.

[ Comments by SUN:

(1) The anti-marriage vote was advisory,
not binding;
but it certainly shows the homophobic attitude
of most Croatian adults.

(2) SUN endorses Jillian Page's
proposed boycott of
travel in Croatia.]
