Topless Activist Celebrates Beating Topless Rap By Going Topless
Holly Van Voast, who has been going topless around New York for years to protest that women aren’t supposed to, has been cleared on charges of going topless. To celebrate, she went topless.
Keeping her black jacket on before the judge at her lawyer’s request, Holly Van Voast accepted a deal covering her trespassing, disorderly conduct and pot possession arrest stemming from when she showed stunned churchgoers and tourists her melons inside St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Jan. 30, 2012.
The agreement also includes two shirtless arrests last summer: On the D train on May 7 for occupying multiple seats; and on the L train on June 7 for interfering with passenger movement, disorderly conduct and occupying multiple seats.
The dismissal deal “covers all of Ms. Van Voast’s outstanding busts,” mused her lawyer Ron Kuby as the case was settled in Manhattan Criminal Court.
