It's summer, which means it's the best season to #freethenipple! Being topless in public in New York City has been legal since 1992, and to celebrate feminism and Women's Equality Day on August 26, the second annual GoTopless Day Parade will march through the city on Sunday, August 28.

Marchers will gather at 58th Street and 8th Avenue at 11am, then march (1–2pm) down Broadway—underneath a pair of giant balloon breasts—and across 48th Street to Dag Hammarskjold plaza, where a rally (1:30–4pm) with speakers and lots of boobs will be held.

"We're going topless for the purpose of encouraging women to exercise their rights," says Go Topless president Nadine Gary. "Its a celebration of our bodies and putting the shame behind us." AMEN!

Check out photos from last year's parade, and stay tuned for the August 24 issue of Time Out New York, where we'll tell you four great ways to go topless in the city if you want to try it out for yourself.
