Save the D8 for NOH8

Save the D8 for NOH8


The NOH8 photography campaign, launched in protest of Proposition 8's passage in California, celebrates its third year with an event in West Hollywood.

Photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley launched the NOH8 effort after California voters narrowly banned same-sex marriage in November 2008. Bouska photographs people 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," reads the NOH8 website. Celebrities as diverse as Run DMC, LuAnn de Lesseps, and Cindy McCain have participated in the effort. The money that people pay for the photographs "promote and raise awareness for marriage equality and antidiscrimination on a global level through an educational and interactive media campaign."

The celebration, on Tuesday, December 13, will take place at West Hollywood's House of Blues, with some of the 18,000 NOH8 portraits featured and live performances on tap. Click here for more information.
