Celebration & Dance Party at Rainbow Park
This topless (optional) bike ride and walk is a display of diverse expressions and acceptance of all bodies. Join us in disrupting injustices such as objectification and sexualisation of our bodies, policing of what we wear or breastfeeding in public, physical and sexual violence and reproductive autonomy, hatred against BIPOC and disabled bodies, missing and murdered indigenous women, among many other injustices.
This Body Pride event is a demonstration of strength and unity. Every human body is valuable and beautiful, at every age, size, shape, race, and/or ability. No one is disposable.
Dress Code: Bare as You Dare/Topless Optional. Participants are invited to feel free to express their body positivity at their own comfort level. Please do so at your own discretion as we cannot regulate photos/videos being taken in a public space. This is a non-sexual nudist event.
This ride/walk aims to be a safe space for everyone. Queer/Trans, BIPOC, and marginalised folks are prioritised and celebrated. Prejudice, derogatory and inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated.
Come celebrate our existence, because our existence is resistance. Bring your gorgeous selves and your radical politics. Invite your friends, get freaky and be yourself.
