On Thursday, December 1st the NOH8 Campaign will set up our mobile studio at The Filmore Theater in conjunction with World AIDS Day in Detroit.
World AIDS Day is held on December 1st each year, raising awareness for the ongoing fight against HIV/AIDS and remembering those who have lost their lives to the virus. Since 1981 60 million people have been infected with the HIV virus and 25 million have died. In the past 30 years we’ve come a long way. We have treatments that keep people alive far longer that many thought possible. In spite of the progress that has spared so many lives, we still have a long way to go.
On December 1st the World will stand together, with one voice, to commemorate World AIDS Day. The theme this year until 2015 is “Getting to Zero.”
ZERO new infections
ZERO AIDS-related deaths
The WORLD AIDS DAY DETROIT Open Photo Shoot on THURSDAY is scheduled to begin at 2:00PM and end at 6:00PM. This photo shoot will also be the very first time the NOH8 Campaign has traveled to Michigan!
You do not need to make reservations to participate in the photo shoot; it's first come, first served! Facebook RSVP's just help us get an idea of the anticipated turn-out. 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 and have your photo taken.
The costs of posing for an official NOH8 portrait break down as follows:
SOLO PORTRAITS .......... $40.00
COUPLE & GROUP PORTRAITS ........... $25.00 per person
The NOH8 Campaign accepts cash, most major credit cards, and checks made out to 'NOH8Campaign'. Fee covers services & processing for one retouched digital print only, made available through www.NOH8Campaign.com.
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 6:00PM 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 8 weeks through the website:
