Mark Storey is a board member of the Naturist Action Committee and has testified at anti-nudity legislation hearings all over the United States.

As editor for Nude & Natural, the magazine of The Naturist Society, he has written various narratives of the naturist events he has participated in or helped organize, as well as places he has traveled to. He wrote an article on the nude beaches of Long Island on the east coast and participated in the Fremont Fresh Air Festival along with two other intrepid clothesfree activists as nude bicyclers to much media attention.

He is a founding member of the Body Freedom Collaborative in Seattle whose goal is to bring attention for the need for legal clothing-optional beaches through "guerilla pranksterism", among other approaches. He co-founded World Naked Gardening Day and is the current lead on that project.

In 1999 he led the effort to defeat Washington Senate Bill 5351, a measure that would have placed skinny-dippers on the state's list of sex offenders.

Mark is also author of a book, Cinema Au Naturel: A History of Nudist Film, and editor of another, Theatre au Naturel: A Collection of Naturist Plays. In 2003, he was instrumental in getting several of the plays later published in this book performed at the Seattle Fringe Festival.
