WATCH: SLC Undie Run Supports LGBT Rights, Sexy News Segments

This weekend, a group of more than 3,000 Salt Lake residents jogged around in the Utah Undie Run to protest the state’s uptight attitude, including antiquated liquor laws and lack of LGBT rights (and, presumably, laws against running in underwear). “My goal is to change Utah. To make this state lighten up once and for all,” said run organizer Nate Porter.  “I’m trying to draw people in [who] are jaded by politics.”

We can’t be sure that the run had any political impact, it did allow the local news station to show lots of youngins jiggling in underclothes, which means we’ve already won. Too bad we missed the news coverage from San Francisco’s nude protest.

    Not enough tight whites thus making the bird watching next to impossible.

    QUEERTY: “Too bad we missed the news coverage from San Francisco’s nude protest.”

    … the NY Times article apparently got it a bit scrambled – it was not really a protest. Details at http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/09/22/BAVI1L7R4J.DTL including, “It was planned weeks ago as a sort of pre-party for Sunday’s Folsom Street Fair.”
