Topless high park 2017 06 16 at 1.20.12 PM

A shirtless march is scheduled at Toronto’s High Park for this year’s Go Topless Day, an event created in protest of female nipple censorship.

Though it is legal in Ontario for both women and men to display bare chests, women rarely exercise this right due to the social stigma surrounding uncovered breasts.

 

jet set nude vacation

Confession: It doesn’t take much to get me naked, especially when there’s sun, beach, and surf involved.

In fact, I’ve been stripping down in public settings for a long time — first as a nude model in college, then at a slew of hippie-dippy, clothing-optional resorts on the West Coast for the past decade or so.Indeed, given the choice,, I prefer getaways that offer an au natural option. For me, baring it all (or nearly all, depending upon resort policy) is pretty liberating.

pool topless

An eastern Ontario city is facing a human rights complaint over its policy on female toplessness in pools, more than two decades after it became legal for women bare their breasts in public in the province.

Cornwall Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy said a woman has complained to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario alleging the pool policy discriminates on the basis of gender.

“Our policy states that girls over the age of 10 must wear a top,” O’Shaughnessy said. “The clause that’s in there is specific to females.”
