ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian and his wife Pearl Aday, singer/songwriter and daughter of legendary crooner Meat Loaf, are featured in the NOH8 campaign. Award-winning American fashion photographer Abam Bouska started the campaign as a response to banning gay marriage in California.On November 4, 2008 Proposition 8 passed, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. In the wake of the defeat, there has been a groundswell of initiative from within the community at grassroots level. Seizing this opportunity, new political and protest organizatitions are forming almost daily. The NOH8 campaign is a photo project and silent protest created by Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct reponse to the passage of Proposition 8. The campaign started with portraits of everyday Californians who support marriage equality and soon rose to celebrities, military personnel, brothers and sisters, law enforcement, lesbian mothers, directors, politicians, newlyweds, and more. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths symbolizing their voices not being heard and NOH8 painted on one cheek in protest. For more information, visit www.noh8campaign.com.
