The Boston World Naked Bike Ride is dedicated to making cycling, nudity and free expression safe and enjoyable for everyone.
WE (organizers, volunteers, and participants) will ensure that all meetings and events pertaining to and organized by the Boston WNBR are safe, comfortable and enjoyable for everyone involved.
WE (organizers, volunteers, and participants) will ensure that no one, under any circumstance, participates in any form of sexual or physical harassment.
Sexual and physical harassment is: Unwelcome verbal remarks or physical behavior of a sexual nature, especially when concerning a person’s body or sexuality.
Unwelcome Behavior is the critical word. Unwelcome does not mean “involuntary.” A victim may consent or agree to certain conduct and actively participate in it even though it is offensive and objectionable. Therefore, conduct or behavior is unwelcome whenever the person subjected to it considers it unwelcome. Whether the person in fact welcomed the act or behavior depends on all the circumstances.
WE (organizers, volunteers, and participants) vow to confront anyone that we see engaging in these types of behaviors.
The Boston WNBR is dedicated to the prevention of sexual and physical harassment at all Boston WNBR meetings and events. The Boston WNBR reserves the right to remove any organizer, volunteer, or participant who violates this policy from the event in which the violation occurs as well as ban the violator from any and all future Boston WNBR events.
WE (organizers, volunteers, and participants) will enforce these restrictions without exception.
WE recognize that this is a NUDE and PUBLIC event.
WE will do our own policy enforcement.
WE have the right to say “NO” to anyone taking photos/videos and/or asking permission to do so.
WE will identify any aggressive photographer/videographer and inform others.
WE will assist each other in defusing a troublesome situation.
WE will ask anyone violating these restrictions to stop and desist, and if it continues, to leave the event.
Ultimately, one of the goals of the Boston World Naked Bike Ride is to desexualize nudity and to encourage everyone to embrace nudity as a normal, enjoyable way of life. Following this policy will help further this goal and teach all of us how to be better people in general.
