News release from Liza Minnelli:
May 3, 2012 – New York, NY -- The legendary Liza Minnelli was the latest celebrity to support the acclaimed NOH8 campaign. Liza’s NOH8 portrait was unveiled today by the organization whose mission is to promote equality through visual protest.
The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created in direct response to the passage of California’s Proposition 8 which amended the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. Photos feature subjects with tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with “NOH8” painted on one cheek in protest.
When Liza was asked her message for the LGBT community she responded, “Here’s what I believe … no shame, no blame, no guilt. Try and be happy. And be who you are. I love you.”
