In Toronto, Hanlan's Point, a clothing-optional beach, was threatened by plans to redevelop the Toronto Islands. Initially, a proposal to build a concert and festival venue near Hanlan's Point sparked controversy and opposition from the LGBTQ and naturist communities due to concerns about invasion of privacy and safety. However, the opposition group called "Hands Off Hanlan's" discovered further proposals that could jeopardize the beach's clothing-optional status and accessibility. Through organized efforts, public pressure, and collaboration with the city, the opposition group succeeded in protecting and improving Hanlan's Point beach, leading to the expansion of the clothing-optional section, infrastructure upgrades, and recognition of its historical significance for the LGBTQ community. 🪐
