10 Celebs Who Support The NOH8 Campaign
Since the NOH8 Campaign was founded in 2009, the charitable organisation has really taken off. Plenty of people believe in its values and therefore lend their support. For those of you who aren’t aware of the campaign, it’s all about promoting human equality. Everyone is equal, including people belonging to the LGBT community who receive a lot of hate. The organisation aims to promote this message educating people, advocacy, largely through reaching out to people through social media, and visual protest. Adam Bouska and his partner Jeff Parshley, founded the organisation, and since its inception, tonnes of people have gotten on board. Even if you weren’t aware of the organisation, in all likelihood you’ve come across their iconic photos. The photos feature people with duct tape sealing their mouths shut, which symbolises voices being silenced. Plenty of people, including many celebs have gotten on board and have lent their support to the campaign. These are 10 celebrity figures who support the revolutionary NOH8 Campaign.
10. Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton, and a lot of other socialites for that matter, love to get involved in such causes. She may not have the best reputation, people may deem Paris to be obsessed with herself, but she does get involved in a good cause. Paris took part in the NOH8 Campaign a while back now. She had a few photos taken, one of which was with her pet dog – obviously the dog didn’t take part, wasn’t muzzled by tape or anything like that!
9. Angie Harmon
Angie Harmon has been in the industry for a very long time. Over time she’s gained plenty of fans, and has reached out to her fanbase. She’s lent her face to plenty of good causes. Angie’s been an ambassador for UNICEF, and she’s someone who strongly believes in equality. The NOH8 Campaign was perfect for Angie to get involved in.
8. Brooke Hogan
Television personality, singer and actress, Brooke Hogan, may not have the best reputation. She’s famous for being famous, for being Hulk Hogan’s daughter, and rose to fame on the family’s reality TV show. Since then she’s gone on to bigger and better things. She’s a major celebrity with an almighty fan following, so her posing for NOH8 probably did a lot for the campaign, and those pics reached a lot of people.
7. Taraji P. Henson
Actress Taraji P. Henson is another strong woman who’s supported the NOH8 Campaign for LGBT rights. She’s proud to support equal rights, because she’s someone who has faced discrimination in the past. Lending her face must have done a whole lot for the campaign. Not that this was the point of it, but she looks stunning too!
6. Nicki Minaj
A lot of people have been gagging to see Nicki Minaj gagged. Well, they got their wish, because Nicki’s been gagged for the NOH8 Campaign.
5. Lisa Edelstein
It’s amazing to think that Lisa Edelstein is in her 50s. Throughout her career she’s been supporting such campaigns. She’s another A-list star who’s had her mouth taped shut for a cause.
4. Eliza Dushku
It was fantastic for the campaign that Eliza Dushku got on board. The stunning actress has been around for a long time and during her time in the limelight she’s acquired plenty of fans. She’s one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood and has got a large fanbase. This beautiful shoot for the campaign therefore reached a lot of people, got more people into the NOH8 campaign.
3. Kristen Stewart
Actress Kristen Stewart is one of the biggest actresses in Hollywood at the moment. She’s also bisexual and has had both male and female relationships. The NOH8 Campaign is therefore something that resonates with her. For her, lending her face to the campaign was also about sincerity. She wants to be true to herself about her sexuality, not hide it for fear of hate. Her taking part probably helped others do the same thing.
2. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus is someone with a huge fan following. Whatever she says or does, people will know about it. It was massive for Miley to get involved in the campaign and lend her face, show her support.

The Kardashians have basically spent their entire lives living in the spotlight. To get them on board and involved in the campaign was a big deal.
