LGBT activists provide awareness at UNI

Posted on Thursday, November 29th, 2012

NOH8 (No Hate) Campaign is a photographic silent protest which resulted from the Proposition 8 passed in California amending the state Constitution ban same-sex marriage. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths symbolizing their voices being silenced. The University of Northern Iowa, UNI Proud, ONE Iowa, UNI Feminist Action League,  and the Northern Iowa Democrats are joining together to provide a free NOH8 photo shoot at UNI. The photo shoot is set for December 6th from 8:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. in the Maucker Union Ballrooms. This event will allow administrators, faculty, students, and surrounding community members to come together to show support for the LGBT population on UNI’s campus and in the community. The event will provide participants with increased awareness on issues the LGBT community faces. The event will be one of the first campus-driven NOH8 photo shoots.
