Actress Aisha Tyler is the latest celeb to step up in support of gay rights.

Tyler, co-host of “The Talk,” joined a bevy of gay-marriage-supporting celebs, including Miley Cyrus, Steve-O, Lacey Schwimmer and the Kardashian sisters when she recently appeared in photographer Adam Bouska’s NOH8 campaign.

Bouska and his partner, Jeff Parshley, started the campaign in response to the passage of California’s Prop 8, which banned gay marriage in the state in 2008. Since the campaign began three years ago, 20,000 people have participated in the silent project, all photographed with duct tape over their mouths and NOH8 painted on their faces. Participants include everyday Americans as well as celebrities.

For Tyler, the issue of marriage quality is particularly important.

“I’m married and my husband is white,” she says. “But did you know that 40 or 50 years ago in many American states it was illegal for black people and white people to marry?”

“Well, now we have that same injustice here in the United States, because gays can’t marry each other in many states. And I support marriage equality because I believe that everybody should have the right to marry who they love.”

Tyler’s portrait is available in a variety of sizes, which fans can purchase to support NOH8.

In addition to appearing in the campaign, Tyler also filmed a video for the Human Rights Campaign, expressing her support for gay marriage.

Collaborating with animal exploiters won’t help animals

The two sides claim to both have the “health and well-being of animals” in mind in this partnership, but one likely said “after profitability” under their breath.

Exploitation for art is no worse than exploitation for dinner

It always seems to come back to a confused juror deciding when animal use is justified.
