The NOH8 Campaign is a photo project and silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8, the constitutional amendment that stripped same-sex couples of their civil right to marry last November.

The campaign started with portraits of everyday Californians who support Marriage Equality and soon rose to celebrities. The photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths symbolizing their voices not being heard and NOH8 painted on one cheek in protest.

You may recognize a few of the NOH8 models in the above photo. Filmmakers Patrik-Ian Polk(Noah's Arc), Maurice Jamal(Dirty Laundry), Quincy LeNear & Deondray Gossett(The DL Chronicles), along with Darryl Stephens, Ray Cunningham, Ben Patterson, Karamo Brown, and Kairon John have all lent their time and image to the campaign.

If you live in Los Angeles and would like to be one of Adam Bouska's next subjects log onto the NOH8 website to find out how.
