Charlie David appears on Bump!, traveling the globe in search of fascinating gay human-interest stories. From gay tourism hotspots to urban centers, Bump! focuses its lens on gay and lesbian communities around the globe. Charlie has hosted for E! Television, NBC, and Life Network. Having enjoyed music and modeling contracts across North America, Charlie is now focused on film and TV with recent roles on Showtime's Reefer Madness and starring in Regent Entertainment's Dante's Cove.





Once you arrive, the NOH8 Campaign will apply the NOH8 temporary tattoo to your face, and we will also supply you with the silver duct tape for the photo.


Funds raised by the NOH8 Campaign will be used to continue promoting and raising awareness for marriage equality and anti-discrimination through NOH8’s interactive media campaign. This includes bringing the campaign to other cities around the country, as well as compiling the images for a large-scale media campaign. Under consideration is the expansion of our campaign to other media, including television and
radio broadcast, billboards, and magazines. Contributions are also used to cover the daily operations and maintenance necessary to run this rapidly growing campaign.

The NOH8 Campaign is an approved 501(c)(3), donations will be tax-deductible up to the amount allowable by law.
