Giants Pitcher Matt Cain Lends Image To NoH8 LGBT Rights Movement
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – San Francisco right hander Matt Cain has become the latest celebrity to be photographed as part of the NoH8 campaign for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights.
The campaign was established in response to California’s 2008 passing of Proposition 8, which amended the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage. According to founders Adam Bouska and Jeff Parshley, the photographic protest, which is known for depicting celebrities and ordinary people with a piece of duct tape over their mouths, symbolizes voices being silenced by Prop. 8.
