On Dec. 15 the NOH8 Campaign will celebrate its fifth anniversary. This week I talked with Jeff Parshley and his partner, celebrity photographer Adam Bouska, creators of the NOH8 Campaign, about how their grassroots organization has expanded to advance global LGBT equality.
In a shoot timed to coincide with the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on the constitutionality of DOMA and Proposition 8, the NOH8 Campaign today released NOH8 portraits for the 67 Members of Congress who took part in its third NOH8 on The Hill event.
NOH8's Adam Bouska and Jeff Parshley and I hatched a plan to take the NOH8 Campaign to Capitol Hill. The end result is this: the NOH8 Campaign will be holding a closed shoot specifically for Senators and Representatives Feb. 15, 2012, in Washington, D.C.
I found myself in a Washington, D.C. hotel lobby surrounded by a group of drag queens attending a gay fundraising event. As a matter of fact, I was in drag, too! Suddenly the doors opened and John McCain was walking directly toward me.
