Jenni (JWOWW to you), who’s going to be celebrating her 27th birthday next week, Tweeted:
The NOH8 Campaign was created after California’s Prop 8 (which banned same-sex marriage in the state Constitution) passed in 2008. NOH8 uses photography and symbolism as its way of protesting — like JWOWW, the people in the photographs always put duct tape over their mouths (to show they’ve been silenced by Prop 8) and write NOH8 on their cheeks. In JWOWW’s pic, you can see she’s getting ready for the shoot and has the “NOH8″ on but is still waiting for the duct tape.
The NOH8 campaign now has more than 300,000 photos in its library, and JWOWW’s not the first person from the MTV fam to take part. As you can see in the photos below: “Teen Mom 2” Kailyn Lowry teamed up with her little boy Isaac for a pic, and Chelsea Houska teamed up with Aubrey. Holland Roden and Crystal Reed from “Teen Wolf” also took part, so JWOWW’s in good company.
Since JWOWW’s spoken out about marriage equality before, this campaign’s obvi a good fit. And if you want your shiny, passionate pic on the NOH8 site, it’s super easy. You don’t have to be a celeb and the photo doesn’t have to be professionally done. The website explains the steps, and then your pic can be seen up there with JWOWW’s.
