Castro Nudists Debating Naked Trash Clean-Up Saturday

We've heard about the Nude-In planned for this Saturday, when people will publicly disrobe at the parklet on the corner of Castro and Market. Woo-hoo! 

But the plan doesn't end there. Now the nudists have come up with a new public relations maneuver to counteract the bad press stemming from Supervisor Scott Wiener's proposed law to make them put down a towel before they take a seat. 

They've been discussing throwing a Castro Street trash clean-up in the buff. See, they're not un-sanitary at all! They basically are a new wing of the Department of Public Works. 

Staunch Castro nudist Rusty Mills floated the idea on a local listserv for nudists:

"We would get a small group of naked guys with brooms and related tools and spend an hour or so cleaning up litter at the Buff Stop and along Castro Street. And we would let some reporters know about it in advance so as to get some positive publicity.

Well, it seems to me that there would be no better time for it than Saturday after the Nude-In. The recent negative publicity over Castro nudism begs for an effective response. What better response than to be seen as agents for cleanliness on streets made dirty by non-nudists?"

So far, he's been getting nothing but positive feedback from his colleagues:

A brilliant notion. I'm always in favor of CLEAN neighborhoods so this is a double-plus idea!

I can see it now..."here comes the nude litter cleaners." 

A site to behold, indeed. Picking up trash requires a lot of bending over, so we may be seeing the nudists like we've never seen them before, folks. Be prepared.

  • 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.'"
