Bouska and Parshley, life partners, started the campaign in Dec. 2008, just after California voters narrowly repealed a law letting same-sex couples marry in the state. More than 13,000 gay activists and straight allies have posed for the photos. Click here to visit NOH8's website and view the photos.

They look absolutely ridiculous in those photos. Who is the moron who came up with this idea?

So Lily, what have *you* done today to advance equality and civil rights? Or is it easier just to sit on your butt and take pot shots at a campaign that has been highly visible around the country and online raising awareness? You may think they look ridiculous, but they are having an impact -- and probably more than armchair online critics will ever have. http://www.noh8campaign.com/article/about
