Young people bring such great hope, especially when they are driven to make this insane world a better place.
Take Yvonne Stanley.
She’s a photographer in Toronto.
I have no idea how old she is.
It matters not a whit.
She is one of those persons who asks “Who says so?” and if she doesn’t like the answer, does something about it.
Not in a bad way, mind you.
Stanley, who is currently working on a multi-disciplinary examination of women’s bodies and self-image called the Boob Book Project, can’t resist breaking down barriers.
How ’bout this one:
For 52 years, the Toronto Caribbean Carnival parade has never had a topless dancer.
A big deal?
Anytime anything changes after 52 years, it’s a pretty big deal, right?
But this isn’t about adding some risqué juice to the Toronto Caribbean Carnival.
It’s about a whole lot more.
What kind of more?
I spoke by phone with Stanley on Friday.Listen
