Why Do Larry King, Kim Kardashian And Conchita Wurst Cover Their Mouth With Ducktape?
Pictures of people in a white T-shirt, with their mouth covered with silver ducktape and the “NO H8” sign painted on their cheek- a clear, strong message, isn't it? You probably have already seen some of these pictures, maybe you even became one of the 40 000 faces that have been photographeted in NO H8 campaign.
Everything started in 2008, as a reaction to Proposition 8, the law that banned same sex marriage and was passed in California. This photographic protest was born in the heads of celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and his partner Jeff Parshley. The charitable organization not just fights for same sex marriage, but also for gender and human equality rights
In the beggining, the campaign started with portraits of ordinary people in California's streets, soon it spread worldwide and thousands people all over the world came to an official photoshoot or took their own 'NO H8' picture at home. Many famous people also started to support this campaign, such as Larry King, Kardashians sisters, Weird Al Yankovic, Lena Headey, Martina Navrátilová and our beloved Conchita Wurst. I'm sure that the photos of the celebrities and other people, taken all around the world, will inspire you to take your own NO H8 photo! You can find them on the official NO H8 web page http://www.noh8campaign.com/ and on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/noh8campaign/timeline , where they already have more than 1 128 000 fans!
