NOH8

Dying to go to a photo shoot since I heard about NOH8, and the strides they are making in this silent protest. Amazing photog Adam Bouska shoots celebs but also hosts open shoots! I want to replicate this amazing photo of my favorite dolls, the Kardashians… with my mom and sister.

Am even considering traveling to a shoot in a smaller city… but haven’t been able to work schedules out. Crossing my fingers I can do it this year! I support NOH8 100%.

On November 4, 2008 Proposition 8 passed in California, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The defeat provoked a groundswell of initiative within the GLBT community at a grassroots level, with many new political and protest organizations being formed in response.

The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska (http://www.bouska.net) and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with “NOH8” painted on one cheek in protest.
