Undie Run for Your Rights

Utahans tired of the state's conservative ways stripped down to their underwear and ran through the streets of Salt Lake City on Saturday.
It wasn't an exclusively gay rights rally, by any means. But of the estimated 3,000 participants, many told local media they were there to support gay rights. Most didn't have to say anything at all, with "Gay Rights" written in paint on an arm, or "Judge Not Les Ye Be Judged" written across a back. One woman told a local Fox station that, for her, the run was all about equal rights.
The event was, not surprisingly, a big hit on social media. Participants flocked to a Facebook page for the "Utah Undie Run," shared pictures and generally agreed it was "awesome." A few of those photos and videos follow here. — Lucas Grindley
