Tue Nov 27 2012 (Updated 11/28/12) Community Members Strip After SF Board of Supervisors Vote to Ban Public Nudity
San Francisco Nudity Ban Passes by Narrow 6-5 Vote In a narrow 6-5 vote on November 20, the Board of Supervisors voted to ban public nudity in the City of San Francisco. Community members have protested the legislation, proposed by Supervisor Scott Wiener, for weeks, culminating when individuals stripped nude after the decision was made at the meeting. The ban will be put to a final vote by the Board on Tuesday, December 4th.

All 11 San Francisco Supervisors are Democrats; the city ordinance was introduced by Scott Wiener and opposed by David Campos, Christina Olague, John Avalos, Eric Mar, and Jane Kim.

In anticipation of the vote, community members have been stripping nude and holding demonstrations downtown and in front of San Francisco City Hall since October, and more actions have been planned leading up to the final vote.
