( – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said, “Enough” with public nudity in San Francisco, adding, “Please. We have our standards.” She also encouraged people to attend the city’s Gay Pride Parade, remarking, “It’s fabulous, you’ll love it.”

San Francisco’s ban on public nudity went into effect on Feb. 1, but not without protests as four naked people were arrested on the steps of City Hall.

“Enough with the public nudity,” Pelosi said in an interview with The Huffington Post on Feb. 12.

“Please. We have our standards.”

Under the ban, however, public nudity is still permitted for children younger than age 5 and at certain events like the city's Gay Pride Parade.

Though she says she’s had it with public nudity, Pelosi still encouraged people to attend the upcoming annual Gay Pride Parade on June 30.

“Come see our gay pride parade,” she said. “It's fabulous.  You'll love it.”

“It's a lot of exposure, shall we say,” Pelosi said.
