SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- A San Francisco nudism activist was arrested at a rally she organized to protest her previous conviction for violating the city's public nudity ban.

Gypsy Taub, 44, who was born in Russia and lived in Hungary before traveling to the United States, said Sunday's rally on the steps of City Hall concerned her previous violation of the nudity ban, which went into effect Feb. 1, and the expected outcome of her appeal, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday.

Taub also took the opportunity of Sunday's rally to announce her upcoming wedding to boyfriend Jaymz Smith, 20, who also disrobed for the demonstration. The couple were joined by a small group of men known for publicly sunbathing dressed only in codpieces.

"I always wanted to be free from body shame from the time I was a child," Taub said.

Taub was arrested for violating the ban and released with a citation.

She said a naked wedding is planned for Dec. 19 on the steps of City Hall.
