San Fran 'nude-in' celebrates nakedness

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Organizers of a San Francisco "nude-in" said the naked gathering is expected to draw a number of nudists to the corner of Castro and 17th streets.

The organizers said the naked people will gather at the location, dubbed the Buff Stop, at about noon Saturday to celebrate the coming of Sunday's Folsom Street Fair, which stretches across 13 blocks of the city and celebrates nudity and leather fetish wear, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday.

George Davis, 65, who unsuccessfully challenged Mayor Gavin Newsom in the 2007 election, said the nude-in is about drawing attention to the fact that public nudity is legal in the city.

"You wouldn't believe how many people don't know it's OK to be nude; it's not illegal," he said. "It's just conveying a message that nude is not lewd, that you have a right to be nude. That's about it."
