Hundreds turned out in Dallas Sunday to say "no" to hate.
It's a peaceful protest with a powerful message that started in California two-and-a-half years ago.
Photographer Adam Bouska created the "NO H8" campaign in response to Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in the state. Fifty-two percent of Californians supported the ban, which continues to be appealed.
Participants are photographed with duct tape over their mouth, symbolic of voices being silenced.
Fatima Inman from Stephenville said for her, this is about more than marriage equality. "We're one world, one group of people, and I think it's nice that we can all get together and support each other," she said.
Sunday's fundraiser at the Vision Forum attracted 842 participants in the first time the NO H8 campaign has come to Dallas.
Organizers said it was their largest turnout ever. All the photos will be posted at the NO H8 Campaign Web site.
