Stripped-down march in SF for right to bare all

Persistent nudist Gypsy Taub bared her body alongside fellow naked activists Sunday in honor of the late, famously free-wheeling Grateful Dead musician Jerry Garcia.

The march from the Castro district to the Haight-Ashbury, which was permitted by the city, had been promoted as a nude “Summer of Love” parade.

The group of about two dozen people congregated and disrobed in Jane Warner Plaza before hiking up Castro Street under sunny skies.

As they trudged up the hill, they waved flags and signs that read “clothing optional” and “nude is not lewd.” Taub, meanwhile, shouted various chants through a handheld microphone, including “Ho ho, hey hey, body freedom is here to stay” and “Hey there, dude, you’re no prude, get in the mood, join us nude.”

“Our bodies are not something to hide or be ashamed of,” Taub said before the march to both participants and a slew of passersby who stopped to take photos and videos. “Our bodies are meant to be celebrated.”

    Wow! If this is what we’re supposed to be honoring?! The body beautiful is nowhere be seen. What is seen is nauseating!

    Fucking freaks.

    I’ll consider my snicker, snicker comments private except for one. Is that person on the left a male or a pregnant female? Big gut, big boobs, hard to tell…

    More of Pelosi’s Morals and Values on Display in her Liberal City of San Francisco…
    In the Land of Nuts…

  • Skip Plummer

    Maybe they should charge admission to that city? You know? Like a zoo?

    • reggie

      Yeah, best freak show in town. Ladies, bring tissues because you’ll either laugh your head off, or cry at the pitiful sight.

  • Richard

    I can’t wait to see Hillary running around nude. That will GUARANTEE Trump the White House.

    • reggie

      STOP! I’m trying to eat, not throw up.

          I just used a bottle of Listerine to get the taste out of my mouth.

    Welcome to the new and improved America, according to the Liberals who wish to destroy her!!!!!

    Indecent exposure must be another one of those laws Obama has decided shouldn’t be enforced anymore. I’m surprised he’s not marching with them. This is what happens when God gets evicted from the country.

    • joe

      Indecent exposure laws can be enforced only on Christians and conservatives but not to worry. Such enforcement would never be necessary

    Unfortunately you guys aren’t getting the message: what YOU find offensive doesn’t matter. It only matters if u protest AND you r a freaking socialist with no class or morals. Take a look at those who r running this country. Need I say anymore?

    • reggie

      Sorry, I’d probably fall over howling in laughter at all of the pathetic junk. Take that any way you want.

  • Gidge713

    Morality in the US is shot to hell. Now they are going to name a Navy warship after Harvey Milk. SICK,SICk,SICK

  • robert sanders

    Who wants to see nude animals with sh#t coming out there ass

  • justinwachin

    Most of these people would be better off wearing clothes. If the one’s in the photos are any indication of the group as a whole, I don’t want to see them nude.

  • CrustyOldGeezer

    “nude is not lewd.”

    Yeah, when you are built like someone that has no PRIDE in their appearance, it’s not only ‘lewd’ it’s DISGUSTING!

    • 1947goldenjet

      How about the scene was obscene?

      • CrustyOldGeezer

        or OB…seen?

  • Donnie Buchanan

    Why are the laws against public indecency not inforced? Oh yes, this is California.

    • CrustyOldGeezer

      It’s illegal to be offended by disgusting behavior.

    The march of the pot-bellied fairies.

    days of noah.
