The weather was obligingly warm.
Men and women joined together. Many of the men wore bras.
I highly suspect that these young men strongly support women going topless.
Young and old alike participated.
I think this photograph explains exactly why so many people were gathered.
The event went without incident. A few frustrated tourists were angry that the large crowd forced a closing of some of the downtown streets.
There was an interesting email to one of the newspaper's columnists. A man who described himself as elderly, said he planned to attend the gathering. As he said, it will be like a flower show...some will be budding, some will be in full blossom, and some will be hanging baskets.
I have no idea whether or not this protest will change the minds of many women. On a personal note, I have no problem with people going topless unless they are preparing and serving my food. (I know that might not make sense, but that's how I feel.) But I can assure you that I will not be going topless, given that I am more closely aligned with the hanging baskets than the others.
