Musician Glen Donnelly went skydiving naked while playing the violin on August 27, to celebrate his 30th birthday and to draw attention to male body image issues. Donnelly launched a GoFundMe campaign for the challenge, which aimed at raising awareness about the body image issues many men face. “While many women are comfortable sharing their vulnerabilities and getting help, men are not reaching out,” said the classically trained violinist. Donnelly told the BBC that his teenage anxiety about his body image developed into body dysmorphic disorder and impacted on his career as a concert violinist.
