No H8, Only Love

, , No Comments
"On November 4th of 2008 Proposition 8 passed in California, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The defeat provoked a groundswell of initiative within the GLBT Community at a grassroots level, with many new political and protest organizations being formed in response. 

The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest in response, which features subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silences by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with "NOH8" painted on one cheek in protest. 
While inspired by the passage of Prop 8, the scope of the NOH8 Campaign has since grown to stand against discrimination and bullying of all kinds. The message of "No Hate" can be interpreted and applied broadly, and speaks to each person in their own way. 

The NOH8 Campaign itself is a charitable organization whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest." (Please visit NoH8Campaign.com for more information.)


With Chicago Pride Parade [fb] coming this weekend , this was something near and dear to my heart I wanted to do and share.

Love each other. Unconditionally and without prejudice. 

We are brothers and sisters to all living things, 
and nothing else, neither race nor colour nor religion nor sex, 
should be more important than this one deepest, 
most extraordinary thing connecting us.
