It will be a demonstration unlike any other outside a pop-music concert in British Columbia.
On Friday (July 17) from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., members of the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project will rally outside B.C. Place Stadium to show their support for Harry Styles's alleged refusal to get snipped.
Styles and his pals in One Direction are singing that night in front of a massive Vancouver crowd.
In 2013, the National Enquirer reported that Styles and singer Taylor Swift parted ways because she wanted him circumcised and he refused to do this.
The supermarket tabloid didn't identify its source.
"The allegation that Taylor tried to tailor Styles's penile style has not yet been confirmed by Styles or Swift," CAN-FAP founder and foreskin promoter Glen Callender said in a statement. "But CAN-FAP is obliged to take all alleged threats to celebrity foreskin seriously."
Callender and his CAN-FAP colleagues also plan to hold a rally outside Swift's concert at B.C. Place on August 1.
"Foreskin is rampant in pop music, with top artists such as Justin Bieber, Will Smith, John Mayer, and Ricky Martin all proud owners of very successful and sought-after foreskins," Callender said.
In his statement, he cited New York magazine and Daily Mail media reports in 2011 that film director Guy Ritchie was circumcised in adulthood "at the behest of his foreskin-deriding bride Madonna".
"Of course, Ritchie—like all men who foolishly slice the man-hood off their manhood to please a woman—ended up without his foreskin or the woman," Callender scoffed. "Our rallies outside B.C. Place will ensure that Madonna is the first and last American pop diva to snatch the foreskin of a famous foreigner."
In 2014. Callender and other foreskin activists held a protest when Bill and Melinda Gates came to Vancouver to give a TED talk.
CAN-FAP has called Gates "Foreskin enemy #1" for funding male circumcision in Africa. Gates has claimed that this surgery can reduce the transmission of HIV by up to 70 percent.
