Go Topless Day 2013 in Vancouver

By Vancity Buzz Staff | 1 year ago | Speak Up

Men can go topless but women can’t. But at least for one day, that will change. This year marks the 6th anniversary of Go Topless Day and on Sunday August 25, people in cities around the world (including Vancouver) are invited to stand up for women’s right to go topless in public.

Unlike many other cities in North America, Vancouver women have the legal right go topless. The issue here has to do more with society’s inability to allow such a thing without others feeling some level of perversion or awkwardness.

Go Topless Day is a 24-hour period where ladies are encouraged to show their breasts as a protest against hypocritical laws that allow guys to walk around shirtless while women must remain clothed.

Men don’t have to feel left out as they can also support the movement as well. Those men who support the mission are asked to cover their own man-boobs with pasties or bras.

46 cities including Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, Detroit, Denver, Chicago, New York and Washington D.C. will be holding demonstrations. This is a huge increase from last year which saw 30 participating cities.
