(SFGATE) — Persistent nudist Gypsy Taub bared her body alongside fellow naked activists Sunday in honor of the late, famously free-wheeling Grateful Dead musician Jerry Garcia.
The march from the Castro district to the Haight-Ashbury, which was permitted by the city, had been promoted as a nude “Summer of Love” parade.
The group of about two dozen people congregated and disrobed in Jane Warner Plaza before hiking up Castro Street under sunny skies.

As they trudged up the hill, they waved flags and signs that read “clothing optional” and “nude is not lewd.” Taub, meanwhile, shouted various chants through a handheld microphone, including “Ho ho, hey hey, body freedom is here to stay” and “Hey there, dude, you’re no prude, get in the mood, join us nude.”
