Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates, Sheree Whitfield, Kandi Burris, Kim Zolciak & unofficial 6th housewife, Dwight Eubanks recently took part in a photo campaign against hate. They were also joined by author J.L. King, V-103 radio personality Miss Sophia and Rasheeda. Adam Bouska and Jeff Parshley of NoH8Campaign.com are Los Angeles based photographers and co-creators of the highly visible campaign. What began as a small grassroots movement in the wake of Proposition 8 passing in California, which effectively banned same-sex couples from legalizing their unions, has now turned into a full fledged movement.
The campaign started with portraits of every day Californians who supported marriage equality but soon expanded to Celebrities and supporters in general. The photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths symbolizing their voices not being heard and the letters NOH8 painted on one cheek in protest.
