JES is proud to announce her participation in the global NOH8 Campaign. JES joins a distinguished list of celebrities and dignitaries who have posed for the iconic photo to raise awareness for equality. The NOH8 Campaign was created in protest of Proposition 8, California’s anti same-sex marriage law of 2008. The portraits, by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and co-founder Jeff Parshley, feature celebrities with duct tape over their mouth and the letters NOH8 written across their cheek, which illustrates their voices being silenced by Prop 8.
“I am very excited to be part of the NOH8 campaign. Equality is what brings us together as a nation, makes us stronger and will propel us into harmony,” says Jes. “I’m proud to be one of the many faces that aid this cause.”
Nearly two years since its inception, the NOH8 Campaign has grown to over 4,500 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.
