LABSN Editor’s Note: Gypsy Taub continues to fight for body rights in San Francisco.
Taub, meanwhile, shouted various chants through a handheld microphone, including “Ho ho, hey hey, body freedom is here to stay” and “Hey there, dude, you’re no prude, get in the mood, join us nude.” “Our bodies are not something to hide or be ashamed of,” Taub said before the march to both participants and a slew of passersby who stopped to take photos and videos.

Thank you for your hard work in equal rights.
Frick Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Summer 2016. Five bare-chested women (one not pictured here) and four bare-chested men spent this hot and muggy, but very enjoyable evening chatting and snacking. Two hours, adjacent to a major road, a sidewalk and a children’s play area, in full view. Curiosity, but all positive or neutral reactions from passersby.
Without hyperbole, there has literally been too much going on in the world of topfreedom this month for me to keep up with.
Personally, I have been going bare-chested in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington D.C. and parts of Maryland (though I don’t have any police in agreement in Maryland yet, I haven’t been arrested either, and I haven’t been hiding.)
