Celebrity photographer and NOH8 co-founder Adam Bouska was at the Duluth Depot on Sunday to support marriage equality.
Bouska and partner Jeff Parshaley created NOH8 as a photographic silent protest after California voters passed Proposition 8 in 2008, amending the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage.
The campaign’s subjects have their pictures taken with duct tape over their mouths to symbolize their voices being silenced by Proposition 8 and similar legislation elsewhere. The campaign charges subjects to have their pictures taken, with the money going to promote marriage equality and anti-discrimination.
The campaign will have a photo shoot Sept. 20 in St. Paul, but the Delligers wanted to take part before Amber gives birth to the couple’s second child.
