Mike Koozmin/The S.F. ExaminerDistraught and disrobed: Protesters bared their feelings and bodies Tuesday as supervisors voted on a public nudity ban.

Angry nudists briefly disrobed and shouted their disapproval at City Hall on Tuesday, shortly after the Board of Supervisors narrowly voted to approve a citywide ban on public nakedness.

The legislation, proposed last month by Supervisor Scott Wiener, was prompted by mounting complaints from his Castro neighborhood district, he said. The impromptu “nude-in” delayed the board’s proceedings by about 30 minutes, and Sheriff’s Department deputies had blue blankets ready to cover the demonstrators, some of whom were escorted out of the building.
