Women could soon be allowed to bare more flesh in Chicago strip clubs that sell liquor in a loosening of the citys nudity rules following a settlement of a federal lawsuit brought by a transgender woman.
Bea Sullivan-Knoff filed the federal lawsuit in 2016 because she said it was discriminatory that she couldnt appear topless without pasties covering her nipples as part of her performance art pieces.
Sullivan-Knoff on Thursday said Mayor Lori Lightfoots administration had agreed to settle the suit by removing all references to gender from the statutes governing how much flesh can be shown in various Chicago establishments.
I am grateful that women and trans, nonbinary and intersex folks now have the option to express their bodies more freely in this city, Sullivan-Knoff said at a City Hall news conference.
Sullivan-Knoffs attorney, Brendan Shiller, said the settlement will also ease rules that currently require women to affix pasties if the establishment in which they are performing sells liquor.
That is one of the side effects, yes, Shiller said. It no longer makes a gender distinction, and that was the citys choice in terms of when we negotiated, how they would resolve this.

Pleeaaaaaasssssssssssssssseeeee, no pictures.
Chicago’s ding-bat mayor is sticking to the script that her fellow crazies wrote for her . . . Chicago will soon be a city that no one will take their family.
I truly hope that God tosses a few well-aimed bolts of lightning down on the next “pride” parade. I know He is long-suffering, a lot more than I would ever be.
This is so sick on so many levels.
Sodom & Gomorrah aint got nothing on us.
I prefer the glazed with raspberry filling...
Oh wait! Thought it was about pastries not pasties...

Strip-club owner: “Why is the number of customers down so much? What happened?”
That 3rd dancer, the one you hired because of that Alderman's request. Well when the 7th veil dropped, turns out there was a dangle there. It was not pretty after that and it pretty much cleared out the place.
Chiraq has been on that list for a long time.
What in the world is a NONBINARY?
This thread is perfectly good without pictures.
I’m glad that Chicago has its priorities right.
Well, depending on where you live, pasties ARE a pastry.
I’m the number of men who want to watch a “woman” with a penis strip and swing it in their face.
When are people going to say no to this crap?
That's the only gun control I can agree with.
I’m sure the number of men who want to watch a “woman” with a penis strip and swing it in their face ranks in the tens if not dozens.
