Getting to the Anaheim area for RWA Nationals a few days early? Take some time away from that Happiest Place on Earth, and consider getting some photos taken via the NOH8 Campaign on Sunday.
A “photographic silent protest,” the NOH8 campaign started after Proposition 8 passed in California. Here’s a look at their mission statement:
“The NOH8 Campaign is a charitable organization whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest.”
Author/graphic artist Lex Valentine attended the photo shoots in Los Angeles. She said that she had the pictures done for two reasons.

“One, I believe in the campaign’s cause, in marriage equality,” she said. “Two, I admire (photographer) Adam Bouska’s work and I wondered how he’d make me look.”
From the young to the old, if you peruse the website, so many different individuals have already taken pictures. *Fingers crossed* I’m hoping to get some taken.
Here’s the information:
