SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco may be getting ready to shed its image as a city where anything goes, including clothing.

City lawmakers are scheduled to vote Tuesday on an ordinance that would prohibit nudity in most public places.

The ban represents an escalation of a two-year fight between a devoted group of nudists in the city's famously gay Castro District and the supervisor who represents the area.

Supervisor Scott Weiner's proposal would make it illegal for persons over the age of 5 to expose their genitals. Exemptions would be made for participants at permitted street fairs and parades.

Weiner says he resisted a ban, but felt compelled to act after constituents complained about the naked men. The ban has sparked nude protests and a lawsuit.
