Hey y'all. I just wanted to spread the word about this open shoot tomorrow afternoon. As you can see, pictured above, I participated last time they were in town and it was a great atmosphere and a great experience. I might actually go again, since my hair is so much longer than it was last time, it's a great cause, and I do enjoy pictures of myself. :)
The following info is taken directly from the NOH8 Facebook invite. That's been going around. If you are interested in being a part of it you should go!
This very special NOH8 Open Shoot is designed to help fundraise via TEAM NOH8 for AIDS WALK NY in NEW YORK CITY, NY on MAY 13, 2011. Team NOH8, led by Co-Founders Adam Bouska and Jeff Parshley, will participate with dozens of other teams at the official AIDS WALK NY on SUNDAY, MAY 15th.
$10 from Each Photo purchased during the open photo shoot on the 13th will be added to NOH8 Campaign's Team Donation; all of the proceeds from which will ultimately be donated to Gay Men's Health Crisis. http://www.gmhc.org/

The photo shoot on FRIDAY is scheduled to begin at 2PM and end at 6PM. You do not need to make reservations; it's first come, first served! When you arrive, you will receive a numbered model release to fill out, followed by receiving your NOH8 tattoo. We will call numbers throughout the day, and your corresponding release number will signal your time to line up to have your photo taken!
The costs of doing a NOH8 portrait break down as follows:

The lines moves quickly, so don't let the RSVP's intimidate you. We always do our best to make sure that everyone in line by 6PM has a chance to pose for their photo - and up to this point, we haven't ever had to turn anyone away! Anyone that would like to join the NOH8 Campaign is asked to wear a plain white shirt to match the look of the signature NOH8 photos.
Celebrity Photographer & NOH8 Co-Founder Adam Bouska will be working around the clock to photograph 5-10 frames for each person that comes through. The final selection he chooses will be retouched and made available to you in about 4-8 weeks through the website:
