NOH8 Campaign to Hold Open Photo Shoot in Provincetown
Yarmouth Port, MA - The NOH8 (No Hate) Campaign will hold its first ever Provincetown open photo shoot at the Boatslip Resort, 161 Commercial Street in Provincetown on Monday, August 22nd from 12-3pm. Photographs will be taken of anyone wishing to participate and will be used in current and future media campaigns.
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 campaign’s 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.
Those interested in volunteering at the photo shoot are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
