Taye Diggs Joins NOH8 Campaign for Marriage Equality
Actor Taye Diggs has joined a list of celebs who have posed for a NOH8 photo, advocating for marriage equality.
According to ChicagoPride.com, the “Private Practice” star is the latest to pose for the campaign and joins his wife, Broadway star Idina Menzel, who also appeared in a NOH8 photo in March.
The NOH8 Campaign was launched by photographer Adam Bouska and his partner Jeff Parshley as a “photographic silent protest” in “direct response to the passage of Proposition 8” which banned same-sex marriage in California in 2008. Photos include celebrities as well as everyday people with duct-taped mouths and “NOH8” written on their cheek.
The NOH8 site says, “Three years since its inception, the NOH8 Campaign has grown to over 20,000 faces and continues to grow at an exponential rate. The campaign began with portraits of everyday Californians from all walks of life and soon rose to include politicians, military personnel, newlyweds, law enforcement, artists, celebrities, and many more.”
