The NOH8 Campaign returns to Silicon Valley on Saturday, April 29th for an open photo shoot at AC Hotel San Jose Downtown, presented by Project MORE Foundation! Stop by anytime between 2pm-5pm to pose for an official NOH8 photo by photographer Adam Bouska. No reservations needed!

Photos are first-come, first-served - and we move fast! Please arrive camera-ready with a plain white shirt to match the signature style of the NOH8 photos.

When is the best time to arrive? Most people tend to arrive before the photo shoot begins, but as long as someone has lined up by the advertised end time for the photo shoot (5:00pm for this photo shoot), they should be guaranteed a chance to pose!

Once you arrive, the next steps are easy!

1. Fill-out one numbered model release for each person.
2. Have a NOH8 temporary tattoo applied for your photo.
3. Standby for your number to be called.
4. Process your payment once called.
5. Trade your processed model release for duct tape!

NOH8 Co-Founder Adam Bouska will photograph roughly 5-10 frames per person. One frame will be selected/edited by our team and made available within approximately eight weeks (timeline subject to change).
While you wait, connect with local LGBTQ nonprofit agencies/organizations at resource tables located in the AC Hotel San Jose Downtown Lounge.  There will be a variety of beverages and drink specials available for purchase all day with light bites available at 4pm.
