NOH8 comes to Melbourne

LAST UPDATED // Friday, 31 January 2014 14:06

Melbourne will be given the opportunity to join the NOH8 against homophobia with their own portrait when the worldwide ‘silent protest’ campaign visits Australia during February.

NOH8 began as a grass roots campaign by Los Angeles based photographer Adam Bouksa to protest California’s Proposition 8 and has grown into a global phenomenon with thousands of everyday people and celebrities donning duct tape and NOH8 painted on one cheek to show their solidarity for LGBT rights.

Five years after Bouksa and his partner Jed Parshley started the campaign, 33,000 people have added their face to NOH8. High profile Australians have posed for NOH8 including Ruby Rose, DJ tyDi, singer Vassy and TV host Ajay Rochester.

Following NOH8's appearance at the Sydney Mardi Gras Fair Day, the campaign travels to Melbourne on Saturday, February 15 with a photo shoot between 1 and 5pm and closing party from 8pm at The Substation, 1 Market Street, Newport.
