NOH8 Campaign

The original NOH8 Campaign was founded in 2009 by American photographer Adam Bouska, as a form of silent protest against California's Proposition 8, which stripped gay couples of their civil right to marry. Since then, over 3500 official and non-official photos have been taken by supporters of the campaign.

Today, gay communities all over the world are still fighting for equal rights. On May 8th, 2010, the musicians of Locus proudly showed their support for marriage equality by posing for the NOH8 photoshoot organized by local photographer Daryl Dyck.
