Dozens of naked men and one woman staged a "Nude-In" the day before the annual Folsom Street Fair. on Saturday, Sept. 24. Some of the naked participants walked up and down Castro Street while the remainder of the crowd stayed naked in the plaza until 2 p.m. Supervisor Scott Wiener introduced a bill last month that would require nudists to use some sort of barrier when sitting in public places.
