Wiener introduces nudity ban in San Francisco

N FRANCISCO -- Nudity will be front and center at San Francisco City Hall now that gay District 8 Supervisor Scott Wiener has moved forward with plans to ban nudists from the city's sidewalks and public plazas.

Last month the Bay Area Reporter broke the news that Wiener, who represents the gay Castro district, was looking at outlawing public nudity. At the board's October 2 meeting he introduced an ordinance that would amend the city's police code to require people be clothed on public streets and parklets as well as on transit vehicles and at Muni stations.

The increasing number of nudists congregating in the Castro correlated with the rise in complaints about their behavior led Wiener to determine that his proposed nudity ban is warranted, he told the B.A.R. in an interview Tuesday.

"A lot of us have been hoping it would run its course and it hasn't. It has become clear to me it isn't going to any time soon," he said. "It is important for us to have this conversation."
