Thousands of people stripped to their underwear and ran through Salt Lake City to protest what they called the 'uptight' laws of Utah. Undie Run organizer Nate Porter said the goal of the event on September 24, Saturday, was to organize people frustrated by the conservative nature of the state's politics.

Nudity was prohibited by organizers. Participants donned bras, panties, nightgowns, swimwear or colorful boxer shorts – and some added political messages by expressing support for causes like gay marriage on their chests, backs or legs. Porter estimates 3,000 people participated in the run, which began in downtown Salt Lake City and circled past the state Capitol building about a mile away

  1. Strange that no one donned the holy Mormon underwear for this event. That would have been fitting and surely would have gotten the Mormon church's gerontocracy's panties in a wad. They are the de facto governing body of the Theocratic State of Utah, afterall.
