City lawmakers are scheduled to vote Tuesday on an ordinance that would prohibit nudity in most public places.
A group of nudists Wednesday filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking to stop the San Francisco Board of Supervisors from passing an ordinance next week that would ban nudity in the city.
A proposed ban on public nudity in San Francisco was approved unanimously by a committee of the city’s Board of Supervisors Monday despite many opponents who came clothed to oppose the legislation.
At Tuesday afternoon’s board meeting, Supervisor Scott Wiener proposed to prohibit the display of genitals and buttocks in plazas and parklets in the city, as well as on sidewalks, streets and public transit.
Public nudists in San Francisco will have to cover up in certain situations under legislation given unanimous initial approval Tuesday by the Board of Supervisors.
Only two people turned out to testify Thursday before the supervisors, as they considered legislation to outline the guidelines for baring it all.
A group of mostly-male participants gathered in San Francisco’s Castro District to hold a “Nude-In” as a way to celebrate body acceptance.
The right to bare all in San Francisco might soon come with some restrictions under legislation being proposed at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting.
