NOH8

I woke up today hopeful. Hopeful that my former (summer) home state, Maine, didn't fall into the trap that my adopted state, California, did. Sigh, it fell into that same trap. Ironically, my former (winter) home state, Massachusetts, has had legalized gay marriage since 2004. Has the state imploded, exploded, or had a lightning bolt sent down by God? Nope. The state runs just fine, my friends.

So, what is a girl to do? Well, pose for the NOH8 Campaign started by photographer Adam Bouska and his partner, Jeff Parshley. They created the campaign to draw attention to the passage of Prop 8 in California. Thousands of photos have been taken....famous, old, young, black, white, straight, gay, families, and countless others who support EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.

I have heard the opposing arguments, but I think religion is a weak excuse, morality is a baseless excuse, and homophobia is an ugly excuse. God is love and God loves all. In my world, there is only one answer: EQUALITY FOR ALL.

PS My official photo will be posted as soon as I receive it. Thank you, Adam and Jeff. I truly admire your work and your campaign.
