Strippers protest to protect booth operations
As many as 50 scantily clad strippers and their supporters convened
on the steps of City Hall yesterday to protest a new law being
proposed by the Commission on the Status of Women to close down
city strip club booths over safety concerns.

The steps of City Hall were transformed yesterday afternoon into
an atmosphere one might encounter at a raucous cabaret block party,
with rap-artists, strippers and their supporters, combining to
create a head turning attraction.
Passers by stopped in flummoxed amazement to take in the colorful
spectacle, and honking drop-jawed motorists managed to safely
pass by without rear ending each other.
The rally was organized by San Francisco's stripping community
to oppose findings by the Entertainment Commission that found
strip club booths to be unsafe for strippers.
The Entertainment Commission that was meeting to consider the
proposal continued the item to allow for more public comment.
