Denver Wants You To Know That Your Butt Might Affront Others

There has been a lot of interest in Westword's World Naked Bike Ride coverage. And some of you out there might have the idea to recreate the magic that the protest brought to our city. But before you strip and run around the 16th Street Mall, you might want to study an important city ordinance.

Sec. 38-157.1. Indecent exposure. (a) It shall be unlawful for a person to commit an act of indecent exposure. (b) A person commits an act of indecent exposure if they knowingly expose their genitals or buttocks to the view of any person under circumstances which are likely to cause a reasonable person affront or alarm. (Ord. No. 967-99, § 1, 12-20-99)
