Robbie Rogers posed for the NOH8 Campaign last month while visiting New York City, and he and the campaign released the resulting photograph over the weekend:
The NOH8 Campaign originally started as a silent protest to the passage of Proposition 8 in California reversing gay marriage legislation in the state. It has since grown to stand for human equality in marriage and beyond.
If you like this photo of Robbie Rogers, you can order it (as well as those from current MLS-ers like Jay DeMerit) at their website to help support the campaign.
Another way to support them is by participating in one of their open photo shoots. Their next one in the United States is at the W Hotel in Boston on June 1. The shoot is from 3 to 7 PM and it’s great scheduling because the Revolution home match that weekend is on Sunday the 2nd. Also for this Boston event proceeds will not only benefit the NOH8 campaign, but also the One Fund set up to assist those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings and their families. You can get all of the details here.
This weekend the NOH8 Campaign will be hitting up the Major League Soccer cities of Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver!
Born out of the fight against Proposition 8 in California in 2008, the Campaign has photographed tens of thousands of folks from all walks of life standing up for marriage, gender, and human equality.
Portland defender Mike Chabala was the first MLS player to participate in the campaign when he was with Houston in 2010:
