NOH8 Campaign

The NOH8 campaign that started as a response to Prop 8 is celebrating their 5th anniversary.

The NOH8 campaign is a grassroots movement that features individuals with duct tape over their mouth and the symbol NOH8 on their face.

The NOH8 campaign started in Los Angeles in response to legislation (Prop 8) that would make same sex marriage illegal. It was a grassroots movement started by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and his partner, Jeff Parshley. The campaign is now celebrating its 5th anniversary and has grown bigger than either of them could’ve imagined.

The NOH8 campaign features individuals with duct tape over their mouth and the NOH8 symbol painted on their face.

At the NOH8 fifth anniversary bash, partygoers were asked what the campaign and its symbols meant to them. Joe explained,

“the duct tape symbolizes that so many people have had to keep silent. We are not going to forget all those people.”

Reggie shared his thoughts about the photos,

“The photos represent equality for all. Hatred is such a big thing in this country and the world.”

The NOH8 campaign organisers tweeted out their gratitude to everyone for attending,
