Day 3

Generally on these daily pics there will not be a blurb to accompany it. But this one deserves it. Tee, Tape and Face writing all supplied free at *Dreams* by Sanura Snowpaw. Accompanying the Tee is a notecard with information about NO H8 and what it stands for (as copied below). Sanura used the 'Love' part of the logo created by Trace Osterham for the front of this tee. The rest of the design was made solely by her. This tee is only for NO H8 and no profit will be made from it.

Love and commitment know no bounds of race, creed, colour, sex or handicap. (from )

"On November 4th, 2008 Proposition 8 passed, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage.

In the wake of the defeat, there has been a groundswell of initiative from within the community at grassroots level. Seizing this opportunity, new political and protest organizatitions are forming almost daily. The NOH8 Campaign is a photo project & silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct reponse to the passage of Proposition 8.

The campaign started with portraits of everyday Californians who support Marriage Equality and soon rose to celebrities, military personnel, brothers & sisters, law enforcement, lesbian mothers, directors, politicians, newlyweds, and more. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths symbolizing their voices not being heard and NOH8 painted on one cheek in protest. " (from the NO H8 campaign website,

As residents of SL and as individual human beings, we have the right to a voice. The NO H8 campaign in SL is a way for us to say "Hey, we want our voices to be heard." Please pass the word on. (From Trace Osterham / Kristen Pick)
