DENVER -- Hundreds of men and women showed up to promote topless equality in Denver’s Civic Center Park on Sunday.
Organizers of Go Topless Day focused on promoting gender equality and to help desexualize the public perception of female toplessness.
“We're here to celebrate freedom, freedom that this is actually legal and a lot of people don't know it. And yet women's breasts are so sexualized that it seems to be such a foreign concept that we could be out here with our breasts bared and not have it be a big deal,” Amy McBain said.
Go Topless Day is celebrated across the country and typically happens on the Sunday closest to Women’s Equality Day, the day American women earned the right to vote.
