Howe Caverns really promotes this event as forward-thinking body positivity. The focus of this year’s Naked in a Cave day is "Celebrating Your Birthday Suit":
"When you truly love yourself, you glow from the inside. You attract people who love, respect and appreciate your energy. Everything begins with how you feel about yourself and what you put out into the world. Believe you are worthy, valuable, and deserving of receiving the best life has to offer." - Howe Caverns Facebook
If you're unfamiliar, Howe Caverns is one of New York state's most popular natural attractions, second only to Niagra Falls. Howe Caverns is named after farmer Lester Howe, who discovered the cave in 1842. He realized that his cows frequently gathered near some bushes at the bottom of a hill on hot summer days. Behind the bushes, Howe found a strong, cool breeze emanating from a hole in the Earth. Howe proceeded to dig out and explore the cave.
