The ninth annual International GoTople$$ Day kicked off in style as many women took to the streets to protest. The incident took place on Sunday as the women marched the street of Midtown.
Other women marched across 50 cities including London, Brighton and Edinburgh all in support of the Free the Nipple movement.
Speaking about the incident, Pagan Chamber, who helped organise the march down the Royal Mile in Edinburgh posted: “Men you could cover your nipples up with tape or wear a B.ra to show the hypocrisy of censorship.”
Tople$$ women carried signs which read “stop over-$exualising the female nipple”, “equalititty for everyone” and “equal Tople$$ rights 4 all”.
Men also joined in the protest with some drawing crosses across their nipples and writing “censorship” and “body equality” across their chests. Larger groups appeared in the US cities as they paraded down tourist hotspots including Venice Beach, Los Angeles and Broadway in New York.
GoTople$$ spokesperson Kasyo Perrie said: “Our goal is for equal gender Tople$$ rights to be enforced worldwide, freeing women’s nipples.
“Freeing nipples and bodies frees minds as well, restoring self-image and self-esteem.
“Therefore, our Tople$$ pride parades will overflow with bare B.reasts, joy and fun.
“A giant balloon in the shape of a pair of B.reasts will float in the New York City’s sky.”
