The NoH8 Marriage Equality Campaign.
In the same way that the black civil rights campaign in the 1950s and 1960s needed white people to participate, the gay civil rights campaign needs straight people on board as well. Civil rights for anyone is civil rights for everyone. This became especially real when protesters across from the shoot shouted hurtful things at the group in the name of religion. Nothing like being discriminated against or persecuted along with someone to make you feel their cause.
It seemed especially relevant for me to do the shoot in February for many reasons: Black History Month, Valentine’s Day, I’m Miss February in the NYC Sex Bloggers Calendar and the second Abiola’s Kiss & Tell Live at Madame X.
Among the people waiting on a long line on a February day to participate was a mother with her children, loving couples and best friends. Brava all! You can see my NoH8 Campaign Shoot Diary at the end of my recent Luvem Or Leave Em Advice Team Vlog. Also check out my NoH8 Campaign Flickr photo and video album. I’ll see my final No H8 Campaign by Adam Bouska photo in about a month.
