NOH8's Big Plans for 3rd Annual Anniversary Celebration

Friday, December 9th, 2011


The NOH8 Campaign's 3rd Annual Anniversary Celebration is this upcoming Tuesday, December 13th - and we have something very special planned!

Celebrating Three Years of NOH8 Activism and over 18,000 photos, the House of Blues in West Hollywood will be transformed into a one-of-a-kind NOH8 Gallery Show featuring hundreds of portraits taken since the campaign began in 2008.

And the best part? This event is absolutely FREE! You don't need reservations or tickets; just come out and support! You can find all the details on our Facebook event page by clicking here.

Some familiar faces will be on hand to reveal their NOH8 photos for the very first time, including Rebecca Black and Shay Mitchell. Portraits from Vanessa Carlton, Audra McDonald, and Will Swenson will also be unveiled.

In addition to the gallery show, NOH8 Co-Founder Adam Bouska will be bringing NOH8 photos to life by photographing some celebrity guests on-stage. Some of the newest NOH8 supporters scheduled to pose include Mackenzie Phillips, Dave Coulier, Ashley Fink (Glee), Chandler Massey (Days of our Lives), and Mitchel Musso.

The Anniversary Celebration will also feature live performances and special celebrity guests who have supported us along the way. DMC (of Run-DMC fame), who issued an anti-homophobia challenge to the hip-hop community through the NOH8 Campaign earlier this year (seen below), will perform featuring a special performance with NCIS star Pauley Perrette. Metro Station, along with YouTube sensations Mandy Rain and Tinashe and America's Got Talent performer Daniel Joseph Baker, will perform live - as well as have their NOH8 photos taken on-stage! There will also be a special NOH8 Video Tribute featuring a live performance by Gabe Lopez.


In addition to these amazing appearances, the City of West Hollywood will proclaim Tuesday, December 13, 2011 “NOH8 DAY” with an on-stage proclamation from Mayor John Duran. This will mark the second time the City of West Hollywood has issued a proclamation; the first being December 13, 2009.

Doors open at 7pm with live performances beginning at 9:30pm. DJ Brynn Taylor will be spinning throughout the night, and an ASL Interpreter will be on-stage to assist our hearing impaired supporters. We hope all of you can join us, along with other special guests including LeAnn Rimes, Eric Balfour, Fran Drescher, Hal Sparks, director Adam Shankman, Christopher Gorham & Anel Lopez-Gorham, Jodi Sweetin, Madison Hildebrand, Tabatha Coffey, Tommy Davidson, Christian Chavez, Damien Fahey, and many more!
