• SeattleInsider: Naked demonstrations in Seattle, 1980s vs. NOW.

    By: Michael Fox


    SEATTLE, Wa. - This is what naked demonstrations in Seattle looked like in 1983 - old cars, large mustaches, media attention and a curious mass of people.

    SeattleInsider dug up this archive video of a naked woman on roller skates protesting legislation banning topless dancing.

    That was the 1980s.

    Flash forward to 2014.

    While naked demonstrations in the 21st century still involve large quantities of people, media attention and creative expression, the act itself often takes a far more hilarious approach.

    At least in this case.

    Ladies and gentlemen, it’s once again time for the world famous Fremont Fair; and with it, a curious demonstration of painted bodies on bicycles.

    One of Seattle’s most joyous summer celebrations takes center stage in the heart of the Fremont neighborhood this weekend.

    You can expect plenty of live music, a fantastic craft market, a pet parade, delicious food and yes … naked cyclists.

    Painted cyclists, who bare all to celebrate the changing of seasons, love for humanity and fantastic artistic expression.

    If naked cyclists are what you come for this weekend, enjoy.

    You won’t be disappointed.

    But don’t forget to check out all the other attractions that the festivities in Fremont have to offer.

    Happy Solstice!
