Last month, Proposition 8 was passed and eliminated the rights that allowed same-sex couples to marry, stripping many of basic civil rights. Protesters marched, appeals were filed, and I took photos. : ) Jeff came to me wanting to make a statement in regards to everything going on. The word spread and soon we had built up a gallery of photos.

In hopes to reach a larger audience, we plan to get more campaigners in the studio for more 'No on H8' shoots. The more people we can get involved, the more effective it becomes.

On my website I will create a gallery dedicated to our collection of No On H8 photos, check back and see who stops in... :)

We will not give up. And we are not done.

Special Thanks to Jeff Parshley for being a great partner and inspiring the project, Justin, Tyler McSpadden, Martina Andrews, Ryan Crooks, Billy Dortch, Brittany McSpadden & Blake Leeser

I love this idea Adam. The best pics are the very cute young man in the center square, the young man to the left of Adam and the young man below him. I look forward to seeing who else stops into your studio. You should get Shane McD to stop in.

wow, really? i hope no one paid you for this and that you get no work related to this. This is the most unimaginative thing ever. Silly faggot, dicks are for chicks.

Aside from the fact this is very unimaginative, it is also inadvertently hateful. Where are the other races? Other body sizes? if you're going to promote a no h8 campaign, you should think about fairly representing everyone else as well.

Adam: Last night I got off work early and raced down to have you take my photo for the NoH8 Campaign. I was so blown away that even with over 1600 people showing up in Chicago (at least that's what I heard), you still took the time to take several photos

Not only is this unimaginative, but it is a direct ripoff of Bound4Life. They've been doing social justice work for 6 years using duct tape and holding silent protests. Bouska and his pals are plagiarists. I also noticed how every comment on the other
