I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur

Spread the Word put on a fantastic, professional "I'd Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur" photoshoot today. The event allowed ordinary South Africans to show it all, to show their support of the Fur Free Campaign. Almost 50 people participated to create adverts like this: 

Well done to everyone brave enough to bare it all for an important cause. While I'd rather go naked than wear fur, I'd actually prefer to do neither. However, I have a lot of respect for everyone who took part. If you didn't get the chance to participate today but would like to star in your own advert, click here. Either way, please pledge not to wear fur

Animals bred and killed for their fur are vaginally and anally electrocuted and skinned alive. There is nothing glamorous about the fur trade.

On a related note, my friends and I went to watch Evita on Friday night at the Montecasino Theatre. It was very good, if not quite the same standard as The Lion King, and Chicago. It was heartwarming to know that none of the fur used in the play was real! Thanks to the efforts of Fur Free the theatre promised to use only faux! The theatre was accordingly given an award, by PETA.  

There will be a (fully-clothed) Fur Free demonstration in Johannesburg on 27 November. Please join us!
