Topless Protest August 24

By SHANEQUA NELSON

My name is Rachel Jessee. I’m the director of GoTopless, a women’s rights organization fighting for the legal right to go topless in public wherever men have that right. We do this on the basis of the gender equality guaranteed by the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Each year, GoTopless holds its increasingly popular “GoTopless Day” which will be held on August 24. We’re planning our very first “GoTopless Pride Parade” for that date in New York City (where it’s already legal for women to appear topless in public). This rally will end at Times Square!

Though the majority of states are top free, some cities in those states have passed (unconstitutional) ordinances that annul the state’s top free statute. The following cities are officially topless “tested”:

  • Asheville, NC
  • Austin, TX,
  • Boulder, CO
  • Columbus, OH
  • Eugene, OR
  • Honolulu, HI
  • Keene, NH
  • Key West, FL at Fantasy Fest
  • Madison, WI,
  • New Orleans, LA, at Mardi Gras
  • New York City
  • Portland, Or,
  • Santa Fe, NM
  • South Miami Beach, FL (on the beach)
  • Washington, DC

How can I find out if my city is topless? Simply google the city name and its municipal code and key in the word “nudity”. Do the same for the county where the city is located to be sure.

Can I be arrested for going topless in a topless city? Even if a top free law is firmly in effect, the police can still arrest you under the pretense of “disorderly conduct”. Don’t be intimidated! You can sue the city back for wrongful arrest (if your only crime was to go topless). That is what Phoenix Feeley did in NYC in 2005.
