SLASH, DAVE NAVARRO JOIN CAMPAIGN AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE BAN

Slash and Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro have both joined the “NOH8” campaign, started by American fashion photographer Adam Bouska as a response to Proposition 8, the notorious initiative that passed in 2008 and banned same-sex marriage in California. The “NOH8” campaign is a silent protest made up of photographs that feature their subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Proposition 8 or similar legislation.

The campaign has featured photos of more than 5,500 subjects since launching nearly two years ago, starting with everyday Californians and soon expanding to include politicians, military personnel, law enforcement officers, artists, celebrities, and more.

Slash and his wife, Perla Hudson, posted a message on YouTube in 2008 in which they spoke out against Proposition 8 shortly after it was passed.
