Topless dancers will join the Toronto Caribbean Carnival this weekend

Four women will “dare to bare” at the Toronto Caribbean Carnival this weekend as the dancers will be taking part in the parade topless.

As part of the Boob Book Project, which celebrates the diversity of women’s bodies, the four dancers will be covered in body paint.

Boob Book Project’s Yvonne Stanley got the idea after noticing the lack of positive images of nude women of colour.

“The Boob Book Project is all about positive representation and yes, Boobs,” states its social media page.

“Carnival is the day to gather all your insecurities and opinions others have of you and throw it in the air like confetti and WUK THROUGH IT!” says the Boob Book Project.

“Don’t spend another, year, day, or moment wasting your time hiding your beautiful body or feeling insecure because once these moments pass you can’t get them back. Today, right now, and forever more we celebrate you and your magical self.”

According to its website, The Boob Book is a project currently in production and “will feature an inclusive photojournalism series, book, and documentary featuring diverse images and stories of women and their breasts.”

Ambassadors for the project will be on the parade route topless on Saturday.
