KISS lead singer Paul Stanley recently lent his support to The NOH8 Campaign (www.noh8campaign.com), a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8.
Jeff Parshley spoke with Monsters and Critics today and shared that Stanley’s involvement meant a great deal to the NOH8 group. “We were honored when Paul Stanley reached out the NOH8 Campaign to lend his support and iconic face to the fight for equality. All of us here at NOH8 think that the straight allies are very important. We need people to see that this is an issue that could potentially affect anyone and everyone. With Paul’s massive following, he is helping us to spread our message of love and equality clear arross the world. We truly value his support and we hope that his voice will encourage others to get involved and do what ever they can to bring full federal equality to every human on this planet.”
The stylized portraits taken by NOH8’s photographer Adam Bouska are intense compositions featuring subjects in various poses with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with “NOH8″ painted on one cheek in protest.
The campaign gained national prominence for its efforts to achieve equality for all and curtail bullying, teen suicide and discrimination in all its forms.
