Public nudity ban in San Francisco

Demonstrators gather at a protest against a proposed nudity ban outside of City Hall in San Francisco, Wednesday,  Nov. 14, 2012.  San Francisco appears poised to shed part of its image as a city where anything goes, including clothing. The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote next week on a law that would ban public nudity. The proposal comes in response to a devoted group of nudists who proudly strut their stuff through the city’s Castro District. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)
