Topless? It's OK in Boulder

The Boulder City Council has approved an anti-nudity ordinance that doesn't include a ban on female toplessness.

Boulder's measure approved Tuesday applies to anyone older than 10.

An early version of the measure would have made it a crime for women to expose their nipples, but that provision was removed. Officials and residents said it was discriminatory since it only applied to women.

The law updates Boulder nudity ban that had applied only at a city lake popular for nude swimming in the 1970s. Officials say not having a local nudity ban meant nude partiers faced state indecency charges, making them vulnerable to being put on a sex offender registry.
