Hundreds of women and men surprised onlookers by marching topless along a seafront in a bizarre campaign to 'free the nipple'. The group headed off from Palace Pier in Brighton, East Sussex with walkers chanting "sun's out, tops off." After marching several yards along King's Road, on the seafront, the procession continued onto the beach and then circled before stopping to sunbath topless. Comedian Samantha Pressdee, 33, organised the topless march to 'stand up for women's rights to go topless in public' and campaign for equality and freedom of expression. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.

Well now, men and women both can show a little skin in the city. Or actually… anywhere in Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico, Kansas or Oklahoma.

Brit, along with co-plaintiff Samantha Six, sued the city of Fort Collins for the right to go topless in public.

It’s part of the #FreeTheNipple movement you might have seen trending on Instagram.

Andy McNulty is their attorney and says the law is an attack on equal rights.

“Any law that says, ‘Women are prohibited from,’ is unconstitutional and really just intolerable in a society that should treat women as equal to men,” said McNulty.

However, it’s not all bare breasts and roses. In 2017 the 7th circuit of appeals ruled to uphold Chicago’s topless ban.

That means there’s two districts in the country with opposing views on the matter. If more lawsuits pop up around the country, the supreme court may have to rule on the issue after all.
