"Go Topless Day" Is Returning To SoCal This August
Mark your calendars: Go Topless Day (just what it sounds like) is returning to Venice for the fifth year. The organizers announced that Sunday August 26 will be International Topless Day (h/t Yo! Venice!)
It's all about principles, people: "As long as men are allowed to be topless in public, women should have the same constitutional right. Or else, men should have to wear something to hide their chests" writes Rael, the founder of GoTopless.org.
