Malaysian Nude Beach Games
Baker Beach, San Francisco
Golden Gate National Recreation Area
(look for Olympic torch and flame)
Registration 11am, start noon
In May 2014, 18 people held the “Malaysia Nudist Sports Games 2014” privately on a beach in a National Park in Malaysia. Most of the attendees were from Malaysia, but included visitors from Singapore, Myanmar, India, and the Philippines. All the participants were Asian. Albert Lam of Singapore posted a video of the event on Vimeo, the less censored YouTube-like video forum. During the month of August 2014, the Malaysian police sought the arrest of all the participants and offered rewards for their identities. Several Malaysian participants were arrested and held in prison for a few days. (“Perp” photos to shame them were released to the press.) The event attendees were threatened with 5 year prison sentences. As of August 29, 2014; 5 were sentenced for 30 days plus a fine. The videographer got 6 months for “distribution and possession of pornographic material.” This story was reported widely in the Asian regional press, social media, and Internet search engines. . . . Hence, the idea was born to call the games in San Francisco the “Malaysian Nude Beach Games.” We will keep the name until such time as the games can be held again in Malaysia without police harassment. . . . The intent of the Malaysian nude beach games is to have fun and make an international statement against police state harassment of nudists.
