Hundreds take part in the ‘Free the Nipple’ walk in Brighton

HUNDREDS of people will take part in a topless walk to protest the “double standard of nipple censorship, body shaming and unwanted sexualization”.

The peaceful protest will meet at the Statue of Peace on the Hove Lawns from 2pm today.

Protesters will head to the i360 before a “rally and picnic” in front of the tourist attraction.

Organizers of the event say they want to “empower” women to challenge societal norms and the accepted belief that men can go topless in public while women can’t.

A Free the Nipple poster read: “Free the Nipple is a global movement of people protesting the double standards of nipple censorship, body shaming and unwanted sexualization.

“Every year we come together in Brighton to say no to the many ways the male gaze continues to dictate our behavior in our society.”

The poster said the march was family-friendly, peaceful and fully accessible.

All genders are also welcome at the march.

A participant from last year said: “Thank you Free the Nipple Brighton for creating such a safe space. I can’t remember the last time I felt so free. It was wonderful.”

Another added that it was “such a colorful scene with such irrepressible joy.”
