So yesterday, several dozen Bay Area nudists staged their second nude-in in front of City Hall. A parade followed in which participants let it all hang out.
In January, the group filed a lawsuit claiming that their First Amendment rights had been violated by a public nudity ban first proposed by Supervisor Scott Wiener. When a judge dismissed the suit, the group lost its cool — and clothes — and paraded naked through city streets.
On Friday, the nudists filed an amended suit and a day later staged their second “body freedom protest parade.” The city had threatened to fine the naked protesters in accordance with the law, which assesses $100 fine for their first offense, increases for additional infractions, but there is no official word on whether citations were handed out.
It’s probably just as well if they weren’t. The protesters after all had no place to put them.
