The Times Square ladies won’t be the only ones baring their chests during Go Topless Day 2018. In fact, all those who support gender equality are welcome to free the nipple and proudly march through Manhattan during this parade. If you didn’t already know, it’s 100% legal to roam around New York topless (yes, even out in the open at the best NYC parks), so unhinge your bra, take your top off and fight the patriarchy during one of the best and most scantily-clad NYC events in August.
What is Go Topless Day?
Go Topless Day encourages women (and the fellas!) to proudly bare their chests and march through Manhattan while showing their support for gender equality. NYC legally allows women to be topless, but for full safety, police will block off the parade route. And it’s only fitting that the body-positive event takes place on Women’s Equality Day which is Sunday, August 26, 2018 (the day women were first given the right to vote in 1920). For more information, check out the official Go Topless Day website.
