for Folsom Leather Weekend
Earlier this week, Castro Supervisor Scott Wiener introduced legislation mandating naked people around the neighborhood would have to carry a towel to sit on when resting at a public seat or bench, and cover up their butts when entering a food establishment.
This has naturally upset the nudists and their many supporters, some of whom have been hoping for a public action to resist Wiener's proposed law to such a non-problem. I suggested to my bare-ist buddy Nude Woody that a naked event get organized before the Folsom Street Fair, both for the nudists to strut their stuff and give us allies a chance to show our solidarity with them.
Woody quickly informed me such an event is already in the works, and from the sound of the post at the Nude-In Blog, it was planned before Wiener made his move at the Board of Supervisors.
Here's the info. Spread the word and plan to be there:
Following the success of the first NUDE IN event on 7.30.11 and in response to numerous requests for another NUDE IN opportunity, a second 2011 NUDE IN has been scheduled for Saturday 9.24.11 at NOON, (the day before the Folsom Street Fair®).
Join a group of forward thinking public nudists and exhibitionists for this pre-Folsom, (aka Folsom Street Fair®), informal gathering. Just how many naked people can fit in the CASTRO COMMONS PLAZA? How long can we hang out before the COPS show up? What will you say if someone challenges your right to be NAKED? Make a statement for body freedom and acceptance, come get buck naked in public with us!
Remember your camera! Forget your inhibitions!
Group forms at Noon and plans to "hang out" until 2pm. Some participants may also walk around the neighborhood as a group during and/or following this timeframe.
The Castro Commons Plaza is located at the intersection of Market, Castro, and 17th Streets in San Francisco.
