Just in case you've liked what you've seen as of late, public nudists will be stripping down at City Hall again as the Board of Supervisors signs off on a new law officially banning naked people in San Francisco.

If it does pass, prolific nudist Gypsy Taub has asked everyone drop trou right there in the board chambers, in the name of free speech.

"IF THEY PASS THE BAN - WE ALL GET NAKED!" she wrote on her website

Once the law goes into effect, which won't happen until February 2013, you and your kid won't be subjected to anymore flapping penises, unless of course you're at Folsom Street Fair or Gay Pride.

However, nudists aren't getting dressed without a fight; the group filed a lawsuit in San Francisco, claiming the city is prohibiting their free speech (aka naked bodies). Last month, the Board of Supervisors signed off on Supervisor Scott Wiener's ban on public nudity, which spared even more public nudity around town.

On Friday, nudists gathered indoors (they don't like to get naked in the rain?) to protest the ban,comparing the nudity ban to the much-despised gentrification of San Francisco.

If you know of some tourists looking for something to do today, tell them to head down to City Hall at 2 p.m. today and watch this mass disrobing.

  • 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.'"
