Jersey Shore’s Jenni “JWoww” Farley is taking a stand for equality—breasts first.
The reality star is the latest celebrity to pose for the NOH8 campaign, a photographic protest against Proposition 8.
Passed in 2008, Proposition 8 took away the right to marry from gays and lesbians in California. The law was challenged by two gay couples, who got a historic decision on Feb. 7, 2012, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit found Proposition 8 unconstitutional. The proponents of the anti-gay law then took that decision to the Supreme Court.
JWoww took the photo shoot up a notch, not only wearing the silver NOH8 duct tape across her mouth, but also sporting it across her bare breasts.
“It was a great experience,” she told MTV. “The story blew up because of human kindness. Don’t hate on your fellow man. It’s very inspirational.”
She added that she decided to contact the campaign and get involved to support her best friend, who is gay.
“My best friend, Joey, is gay and he was with his boyfriend, Eric, for seven years,” the 27-year-old said.
“He wanted to get married so bad for like the last four years. Three months before the law was passed, he went to a courthouse for the common law, and I don’t want to say they disrespected him, but they just treated him like another number ... I think everyone, gay, straight, should be able to have that and cherish that and have all the pictures, the family, everything. It’s really important to me.”
