NOH8 photo-fundraiser returns
California photographer Adam Bouska tapped into a specific energy when he came out with the concept for his NOH8 campaign — the leged painted on people’s faces, their mouths taped shut, protesting the anti-gay Prop 8 legislation. Now, marriage equality is the law of the land, but Bouska’s photos still have power. You can join an immense slate of celebrities in having Bouska immortalize you. It’s $40 for a solo shot, or $25 per person for mutliple participants. And how great that it returns to Dallas during gay Pride?
