The NOH8 Campaign In SecondLife (Updated)

The NOH8 Campaign (url) has now moved from first life into SecondLifeKahvy Sands, one of my oldest friends inworld, informed me today.

The move, according to my information, came about through the work of Thorn Andel. Kudos to him!

The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska ( and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Proposition 8 and similar legislation around the world, with "NOH8" painted on one cheek in protest.

To join in the campaign in SecondLife you take a picture of yourself and post it among the pics on your profile.

The necessary utensils (the duct tape and the cheek painting) can be picked up free of charge at Kahvy Sands venue Big Momma´s Ballroom Update new location inserted. You get the the NOH8 stuff by touching the vase with roses in the left corner.

"The dream of marriage shouldn't just be limited to heterosexual people, it should be about two people who love each other. Period. Don't H8, it's unbecoming." -  Lisa Ling (American journalist)

I am going to get my picture ready next time I am inworld more than a few minutes.

P.S. If you would please send me your picture (fullperm), I will be happy to post it. Name the picture NOH8 and your avatar name and drop it on my profile or send it to my email


  1. I seem to recall someone setting this up a year or so back. They provided a photo set up where you could stop by and take your pic. I may even have the duct tape and tattoo in my inventory which were also provide free of charge. I will check and see. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Cool Rocky, I did not know there had been a previous campaign in SecondLife. I am sorry to have missed it but this time I am going to join!

  2. Yeah, little add on: it's not me bringing it to SL, just thought I'd send it out into the world once again with the No H8 reaching his 4th anniversary :) More info on the No H8 campaign in SL on:

    1. owh and pps: Picture taken bij Save Zsun ;)

    2. In my post I have only stated that you brought the campaign to my attention, Kahvy my dear friend, not that you launched it in SecondLife. So what is written stays as is, because it cannot rightfully be read as if I say that you brought the campaign to our virtual world.

      Like I have answered Rocky in an earlier comment, I am sorry to say but I seem to completely have missed the previous NOH8 campaign in SecondLife. Perhaps I was preoccupied with something else.

      I have now corrected the name of the photographer though. ;)

  3. you're right Bock I know that, just got some comments from people thinking I launched it. *Sigh* if only folks would read right :-) But hey don't matter, what matters is how many join in! Got a few, but having the Picture of THE Bock McMillan in my Ballroom photochanger would be amazing :P :P :) *kiss*

  4. Haha that is indeed a small request I will be happy to grant, mijn vriend! I will add it at the first possible time - and after I have taken a new picture because I am not happy with the one I have posted.

    My favorite picture turned out to have been taken while I was still in pervcam/highlight and showed me with a reddish aura... *deep sigh*
