The NOH8 Campaign (NOH8 meaning “No Hate”) is a charitable organization in the United States whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest.
The campaign was created as photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska 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.
The phrase refers to “H8″ (leet for ‘hate’), short for “Proposition H8″ (pronounced “proposition hate”), a nickname used by critics of the proposition. The photos are featured on the campaign’s website, as well as various social networks, as well as a virtual world campaign in Second Life.
From a dear Facebook friend who was there too:
“That was freakin’ awesome to have our photo taken by Adam Bouska, the talented photographer of all the NOH8 campaign photos.
I told him I am a huge fan and hugged … he smelled good.”

Once you arrive, the next steps are easy!
1. Fill-out one numbered model release for each person.
2. Have a NOH8 temporary tattoo applied for your photo.
3. Standby for your number to be called.
4. Process your payment once called.
5. Trade your processed model release for duct tape!
It was easy as pie. We were there by 11:40. The doors were opened at 12 o’clock. We received our released forms. Completed them and signed them.We got numbers 50 & 51.
Walked in, got our temporary tattoo on and waited for our number to be called. While we waited, I bought my obligatory “NOH8” T-shirt.
Once it was our turn, we posed and Adam took several poses. It was all very well organized.
Adam and Jeff were very professional, well prepared, quick and effective.
We were out by 12:30 PM.
Now we wait for the official photo from their Burbank Headquarters.
