FREE THE NIPPLE was created in answer to Sesta Fosta legislation which has resulted in the enforcement of puritanical censorship laws that target women, trans and non-binary people. Censorship silences artists and entrepreneurs and promotes a sexist double standard that does not align with feminist ideals of body and sex-positivity. In the words of Violet Rose – “You can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.”
KIRRA adapted the concept to nightlife and held a 'Free The Nipple Toptional Dance Party' at The Box on August 24th for an evening of hedonistic activism. The event was hosted by Boo Bess and featured performances by; Aurora North, Peter Mercury, Roxie Valdez, Sam Marsh, Poison Ivory, Shawn Gooden and Amanda Whip.
