April 1978: Diamond Lil challenges Tampa’s nude dancing ban

CATHI Schutzler, owner of Diamond Lil’’s Saloon, operates cassette film for dancer Kim Thompson, 24. On screen, dancer strips nude: On stage, the dancer does the same routine at the same time live, but strips only as far as a skimpy bikini-type outfit. Miss Schutzler says she believes this does not violate Tampa’’s law banning nude dancing in bars on April 22, 1978, where alcohol is sold.
