The FIRST elected national representatives EVER have posed for the NOH8 campaign. Here are their portraits along with the reasons why they support the campaign. Thanks guys.
Laurence Watts, a freelance journalist who made this all happen, said:
On Feb. 15 Adam Bouska, Jeff Parshley, and I were in Washington, D.C. for "NOH8 on the Hill," the exclusive NOH8 photo session we set up especially for members of Congress. We thought we might be able to persuade a couple of Congressmen to take part. This is an election year, after all. What actually happened exceeded our wildest expectations.
By the end of the day, 10 members of Congress had posed for NOH8 portraits. Ten!
Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, District of Columbia
“Don’t be fooled, I’ll never be silenced about marriage equality.”
Rep. Judy Chu, California, District 32
"I’m proud to join over 20,000 participants who’ve posed in NOH8 photos depicting the silencing of equality by California’s Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world. These pictures speak volumes about the will of the American people to be treated the same, regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation."
