Go Topless Day

Go Topless Day can be celebrated on August 26 or any day of the last week of this month. This peculiar holiday, more reminiscent of an event or a flash mob, is not for nothing on the calendar so close to Women’s Equality Day. It also has a gender coloring – it was invented to emphasize the right of women to behave in public places in the same way as men. No one seriously condemns men for going shirtless! The purpose of the event is to allow women to go topless where this action is prohibited by law.


The first ever Go Topless Day was organized by Go Topless from Nevada in 2007. It is curious that this team was created by a man known as Rael. His real name is Claude Vorillon, and literally from his youth he was a social activist. He began studying at a Catholic school, but made a real scandal in it, as he took communion, being unbaptized. A little later, he demanded that the Catholic Church pay compensation to the descendants of the Huguenots.

Since 1973, he has led the international UFO religion, writing books about his contact with alien intelligence, and traveling the world promoting his ideas. South Korea denied him entry into the country, Switzerland banned residence in one of the cantons.
