GoTopless for Gender Equality

GoTopless Day is now on its 10th anniversary as an international day of action for gender equality. People of all genders and of all ages come together to highlight the inequality that still exists in our society and in our laws.

In many places, including Arizona, we have laws that blatantly discriminate

based on gender. Most of which are vague and are open to interpretation.

Arizona has one such law that which criminalizes toplessness based on gender (ARS 13-1402A). While cisgender males are perfectly within their legal rights to be topless in public, women and transgender people can be convicted of Indecent Exposure for the same act.

We are for equal topless rights for all. It is unjust to treat our bodies differently in the eyes of the law. Or to label our bodies "indecent" based solely on gender.

These laws are based on heteronormative, sexist assumptions and they must go!


This year's demonstration is on for the weekend of Saturday the 26th of August at 09:30 am. We are meeting up at Steele Indian School Park and proceeding from there.

This is the 6th year in a row now Go-Topless has been in the State of Arizona. Please join us for a fun, empowering, and liberating protest.


*IMPORTANT NOTES

1. Wear plenty of sunscreen and stay hydrated. It's going to be warm out there.

2.We highly recommend comfortable footwear.

3. We'll have some posters but feel free to bring your own. We love seeing how creative people get!

4. We ask that all attendees cover their areolas and nipples in compliance with the current law / in solidarity with those of us subject to this law.
Participants have used pasties, tape, paint, band aids, etc. in years past. All of which will be on-site, or you may use your own creativity.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you all soon!
