NOH8 Campaign takes snapshots of Seattle

by James Whitely - SGN Staff Writer

On Monday, August 23, the NOH8 Campaign set up a photo studio at Seattle's W Hotel (1112 4th Ave.) in Downtown Seattle to shoot their popular and stylish NOH8 Portraits for Seattle-area residents. The photos of all Seattleites that attended will be featured on the NOH8 website once the images are edited by photographer Adam Bouska.

According to website reports, approximately 300 Seattle residents attended the shoot.

From about 3:30 to 7 p.m., anyone could join the NOH8 Campaign by wearing a plain white shirt to match the signature look of the photos. Models were given the NOH8 temporary tattoo on their faces and provided with pieces of duct tape, as per the style of the photos.

Costs per photo were $40 for a solo portrait and $25 per person for group photos.

The funds raised by the NOH8 Campaign are "used to continue promoting and raising awareness for marriage equality and anti-discrimination through NOH8's interactive media campaign."

Essentially, this means that the contributions go to sustain the campaign itself. With well-known personalities offering themselves to the camera almost daily, along with the sheer number of NOH8 photos (now over 6,000), the NOH8 campaign has no doubt become a substantial force in the fight for equality.

Seattle was just one stop among many planned by co-founders Jeff Parshley and Bouska. The NOH8 Campaign is currently making an effort to travel around the country in order to find larger numbers of people to join the NOH8 Campaign.

The NOH8 Campaign has photographed Gay rights movement leaders such as Cleve Jones and Dan Choi, as well as celebrities such as Kathy Griffin, Tara Reid, Lance Bass, and many others.

The NOH8 Campaign is currently under consideration for 501(c)(3) status.
