Protesters get naked at San Francisco City Hall

  • City supervisors vote to ban public nudity
  • Nudists believe it's a matter of freedom of expression

What better way to protest a new ban on public nudity than getting naked?

That's what several people did in San Francisco City Hall on Tuesday, right after the Board of Supervisors voted 6-5 to ban anyone over the age of 5 from exposing their genitals in most public places. HLN affiliate KGO was there.

The protesters say the new law infringes on their rights and will chip away at the tolerance for alternative lifestyles San Francisco is known to embrace. 

The final vote is next month, but it's mostly a formality. Opponents have already filed a lawsuit.
