Hundreds of men and women have gone topless to stage a protest on one of
Britain’s most popular beaches (Brighton) to ‘Free the Nipple’ and make
boobs more acceptable in society. The campaign’s aim is to highlight
social media policies over banning nipples. They want social media to
allow women’s nipples to be visible.
Despite the event, which held on Wednesday, being a success the group
are already planning for another march in the upcoming campaign on
The protesters marched from Brighton Pier to East Sussex city seafront
before stopping on the beach where everyone sunbathed topless.
The event was organised by comedian Samantha Pressdee, who came to
Brighton with her one-woman comedy show about nudity and sexuality.
‘I’ve been a member of the Free The Nipple campaign over the past year. I
joined the campaign to challenge the way women’s breasts were
perceived. Breasts have been sexualised and the point of this campaign
is that they don’t have to be sexual.’
We had a lovely time, loads of pictures were taken.We ended up relaxing
on the beach, some people decided to go for a swim whilst others brought
out their guitars’.
