Denver is one of the growing number of cities across America where topless equality is legal. On August 25, Denver will host one of many US parades that advocate and normalize the benefits of co-ed toplessness.
August 25 falls on Women's Equality Day, which commemorates the 1920 Constitutional Amendment granting women the right to vote. While we've made progress in the 100 years since its passage, archaic laws still exist to reinforce traditions that deny women true equality.
Topless equality is a crucial pivot point for social change, combating body image issues, objectification, toxic masculinity and rape culture. It prompts self-reflection and dialog about the ramifications of #SexSells in media, promoting empowerment and freedom, respect for boundaries, appreciation and joy.
♥ This year, we’re making a public call-out for anyone with a talent to attend. ♥
Jugglers, hula-hoopers, dancers, agro-yoga, acrobats, artists, musicians, magicians, cos-play, and more. If you want to shine while supporting a great cause, come on out!
We’re simplifying this year’s event to keep a more grassroots feel. We want the event to focus on participants’ empowerment and enjoyment, providing an environment that promotes participant interaction and making new friends.
We also want the participants to clearly understand how powerful a statement they’re making.
Women and their supporters have marched for women’s rights throughout our nation’s history.
We follow in their footsteps.
Our attendees are the kinds of people who don’t just complain about the world, they get out there and help to change it.
♥ Reminder: Toplessness is optional ♥
BIKINI TOPS, BLACK TAPE, STICKERS, BODYPAINT, ETC ARE ALL WELCOME.
PARTICIPANT COMFORT IS PARAMOUNT.
WE JUST WANT YOU THERE, HAVING A GOOD TIME, SUPPORTING A GOOD CAUSE!
Respect people’s boundaries ♥
No sexual acts (follow the law)
No marijuana smoke (follow the law)
No glass containers
Don't walk in the path of the Mall Shuttle
Obey crosswalk signs
Keep calm in the face of criticism
Point out potential conflicts to DGT Security personnel and/or Denver PD
WHAT TO BRING:
A Great Attitude!
Summers in Denver can get pretty warm, and it'll be a full day standing and marching in the sun. We don't want anyone dropping from heat exhaustion. We're hoping Good Samaritans can bring a case of bottled water or bag of ice to donate to the event. We'll have a shade station with water-bottle barrels on hand, so that we can hydrate those in need, but we'll need your help if we hope to remain stocked. #BeAHero ♥
