Oasis Aqualounge participated in the official Go Topless Day with an intersectional gathering, that was organized by Marketing Director Fatima Mechtab. This empowering march also served as a peaceful protest to recognize sexual harassment as the main reason why so many women do not exercise their legal right to go topless in Ontario.
Thanks to Gwen Jacob,woman-identified folks won the legal right to be topless in Ontario in 1996. However, many people do not exercise this legal right, due to sexual harassment and the potential threat of sexual/physical violence.
On Sunday August 26th, folks of all genders, including the Oasis AquaFlirts took to the streets to get something off their chests, including their tops! This fun and festival day was enjoyed by many, who were able to embrace Topfreedom within a group setting, ensuring more safety in numbers.
We appreciate everyone who came out to march with us, in support of this important message.
