Nudi-Meter: Here's Where You Should (and Shouldn't) Think Twice Before Stripping 

Wednesday, Jun 25 2014

Pride Parade: Nudity is questionable during any event that kicks off this early in the morning. The parade tends to be a family-oriented event, so at least stick some rainbow pasties over your nipples and conceal that beer can in a paper bag. SF Pride Parade starts Sunday, June 29, at 10:30 a.m. at Market and Beale streets, S.F. Free; visit

Pride Celebration: Even though nudity is allowed at Pride, it's been banned in Civic Center Plaza for some time. There always seems to be a few rogue nudists on the grass outside City Hall, but this is an iffy area to be in the buff. SF Pride celebration starts Saturday, June 28, at noon and continues through Sunday, June 29, at Civic Center Plaza, S.F. Free; visit

Kinky Kissing Booth: Queer-friendly bars like El Rio throw amazing parties throughout Pride weekend, and you might be able to let a little nip slip with the 21+ crowd. Live sex show creators Cum & Glitter present the Kinky Kissing Booth during the bar's official Pride party, where you might have to bare your bum for a spanking. Cum & Glitter Kinky Kissing Booth starts at 3 p.m. at El Rio, 3158 Mission St., S.F. Party admission is $8; visit

Jane Warner Plaza: For the city's traditional nudists, Pride is a chance to return to their former stomping grounds in the Castro and sun themselves without fear of a ticket. Jane Warner Plaza is also a nice vantage point to watch the Castro's festivities. Jane Warner Plaza is at the intersection of Castro and Market streets, S.F.

Dyke March: This Saturday rally and march for lesbian visibility is the locals-only, freewheeling sister of the official parade on Sunday. Last year, we spotted queer pornographer Courtney Trouble filming a sex scene on the march route, so we're pretty sure anything goes here. Dyke March starts Saturday, June 28, at 4 p.m. on Dolores Street (between 18th and 19th streets), S.F. Free; visit

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
