A Call for Help

Hello, Watchers of the Topless New York series! Some of you have been following my work for about five minutes, some for the entire nearly-eight years I've been on DeviantArt. I've been deeply appreciative of your efforts to "favorite" my images, adds to your collections or your group galleries, and your enthusiastic feedback about the project and the brave women who participate.

You also may know that this has always been a "labor of love" for me, an activist project to raise awareness, not money. In fact, overall I'm quite in the hole from paying modeling fees back in the day. Lately I've earned a bit of income from the photosets via Patreon and Diverxity (which is also how new models for the series are now compensated), but just a bit, and I'll still be in the hole for the foreseeable future.

Recently, I was offered the opportunity to show some of my work as part of a gallery show here in New York City, which would be quite a coup, and could draw some much needed attention to the project (and perhaps even sales?). But as always with these things, I am expected to provide the prints myself. I simply cannot afford right now to lay out the additional money it would take to provide 12-15 prints.

So if you have enjoyed my work on the Topless New York series - whether it's because you're a feminist who thinks women should have all the same rights as men in every state, not just New York; whether it's because you like the artistic and/or subversive nature of the photography; or whether you just like seeing naked boobs in public - I would be grateful if you would show your appreciation with a donation of points, which I'll use to order prints through DeviantArt. I've set up a "Donation Pool" on my DeviantArt page, which you'll find if you scroll down toward the comments section. Please give as generously as you feel you are able, and in return I promise I will continue to post new (and "new to you") photos from the Topless New York series frequently here on DeviantArt.

Thank you!!

Gotta say, "these women are absolutely BRAVE to go topless in public" :)  I hope you don't have problems with the police or people complaining :)

So very glad to find your page, and the work you are doing.  I recently did a couple of pieces myself addressing the same issue.  Keep up the great work.  Cheers
