NOH8 Campaign Adds 200 Fashionable P’town Faces
Provincetown, MA - The NOH8 (No Hate) Campaign held its first ever Provincetown open photo shoot at the Boatslip Resort on Monday, August 22nd. Over 200 individuals and 20 volunteers had their photo taken with the NOH8 temporary tattoo on their cheeks and duct tape on their mouths to add their faces to the international anti-discrimination media campaign.
The NOH8 (No Hate) Campaign, created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and his partner Jeff Parshley, started as a photographic silent protest to the passage of Proposition 8 in California and has grown into an international campaign bringing awareness to marriage equality and anti-discrimination. Photos feature subjects with duct tape covering their mouths, symbolizing the silencing of their voices by anti-marriage equality legislation, and NOH8 painted on one cheek.
Since the campaigns inception in 2008, it has grown to over 10,000 faces in over 15,000 photographs, including many well known celebrities and political figures. The campaign has grown through the use of social media and boasts over 447,000 Facebook fans and 172,000 Twitter followers.
The NOH8 Campaign is a recognized 501(c)3 charity and all funds raised goes toward promoting and raising awareness for marriage equality and anti-discrimination through its interactive media campaign.
The photos taken in Provincetown will be edited and made available for free download at www.noh8campaign.com in approximately 8 weeks. Prints will also be available for purchase.
