In nod to the Helliday Season of giving, the hopeful repeal vote tomorrow on DADT, and The UNs recent disappointment decision to “ remove a reference to sexual orientation from a resolution on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions. The resolution urges member states to protect the right to life of all people and calls on them to investigate killings based on discriminatory grounds. For the past 10 years, the resolution has included sexual orientation in a list of discriminatory grounds on which killings are often based.”, we decided to support the gays and create our own NOH8 installment.
‘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.’
‘Nearly two years since its inception, the NOH8 Campaign has grown to over 5,500 faces and continues to grow at an exponential rate. The campaign began with portraits of everyday Californians from all walks of life and soon rose to include politicians, military personnel, newlyweds, law enforcement, artists, celebrities,’ and now Montreal Street Fashion.
With recent events all over the world from gay teenage suicide, to homosexual genocide, to everyday liberties we take for granted such as marriage.
NO ONE should be able to limit who you are and who you can be.
NO ONE should be able to tell you you can’t die for your country if you’re a lesbian.
NO ONE should be allowed to execute another because of rumors that one may be gay.
NO ONE should be born into hatred.
This season lets not forget those who are still experiencing hate everyday
This season remember:
