NEW YORK – Activists paraded shirtless through the streets of New York City on Saturday, flashing their chests to celebrate the 10th annual Go Topless Day Parade reports the Daily Mail.

Walking to the beat of drums in a carnival-style atmosphere, dozens of men and women embarked on the one-mile march from Columbus Circle to Bryant Park for the event, which this year falls on Women’s Equality Day.

The annual event was established in 2007 by Nevada-based organization GoTopless, which promotes gender equality.

Participants of all shapes and sizes held up placards proclaiming: ‘Equal Topless Rights For All’ and ‘War Is Obscene Not My Nipples, Meditate 4 Peace Topless’.
