So what happens on our marches?
Several hundred women, men, gender non-binary and trans folk join the Free the Nipple movement and demonstrate on Brighton seafront every year. The march has been designed to highlight the sexist double standards that exist in our everyday lives and challenge perceptions of bodies, breasts, nipples and gender. It’s the biggest Free the Nipple collective in the UK.
The Free the Nipple Brighton team is comprised of creatives, writers, photographers, party planners, videographers, body painters, social media coordinators and strategists. We implement a detailed stewarding plan to ensure the safety and comfort of participants, with a clear and easy to follow code of conduct for both participants and on-lookers.
We often host an after party featuring DJs, drag queens, performance art and burlesque.
We are a trans inclusive, anti-racist and disability accessible organisation.
