San Francisco Board of Supervisors: Refuse to ban public nudity in San Francisco

San Francisco has always been on the leading edge of new ideas and social change. Currently the City by the Bay is embroiled in a controversy about public nudity. Right now there is no law preventing public nudity in the City and County of San Francisco. Let's keep it that way! This important freedom has contributed to the continued success of many long-running and popular street events including Bay to Breakers, Pride, World Naked Bike Ride, Up Your Alley Street Fair, Nude In Body Freedom Demonstration and Folsom Street Fair. The general acceptance of public nudity in is one of those cool only-in-San-Francisco things and we want to encourage the City Leaders and Elected Officials to resist giving in to a few anti-nudists who would like to impose a total citywide ban. That's totally un-San Franciscan! Show your support for body freedom and acceptance. Please consider signing this petition and ask the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and other City Leaders to refuse to introduce or enact a citywide ban on public nudity. Thank you for your support!

      I like visit SF, because I like the events where I can be naked, and walk at Castro, Market or Folsom naked. Now where I'm going to spend my days???

      I am an alum of UCSF Medical Center. Nudity is part of my San Francisco. If you don't like it, don't do it. If you don't like to see it, stop staring. Thank you.

      Because I think the supervisors should be making themselves useful.

      In my life, SF is a wondrous city in the western world where we can chose to be nude in public and still not be arrested. Of course France has gone longer as they have the “Cap d'Agde” – Naked City, where the law prohibits clothing. Truly how is it that a nude person is offensive to some – perhaps they don’t distinguish between nudity and sex? I truly believe that there is a special place for everyone’s diversity in this world we share and I am sadden by those people whom is so afraid of our peaceful diversity that they must constrict criminal law so that perhaps clothing industry would be selling more-? In mainland Africa where total nudity is common there is less aggressive behaviour and if you cover yourself, then you can not be trusted as you are hiding something. Mind-boggling isn’t it?

      Whether or not you agree with these people, San Francisco is the one place in the USA where they should be able to have freedom of expression.
