Wife and daughter of Sen. John McCain step up again for NOH8

The 2008 Repubican presidential nominee has been no friend of gays, but Cindy and Meghan McCain are publicly for LGBT equality

Wife and daughter of Sen. John McCain step up again for NOH8

As most of the GOP presidential hopefuls slugging it out at today's Iowa Caucuses remain steadfastly against LGBT equality, the wife and daughter of the 2008 Republican nominee are no longer toeing the party line.

Sen. John McCain's wife, Cindy, and daughter, Meghan, have posed for photographer Adam Bouska for a joint portrait for the NOH8 campaign which celebrated its third anniversary in December.

It is the second time the McCains have posed for a NOH8 portrait but previously they had posed separately. 

John McCain was one of the most vocal opponents last year of the military ending the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy and voted in favor of the Defense of Marriage Act believing marriage is between a man and a woman.

The NOH8 campaign was founded by Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in the weeks following California's passage of Proposition 8 in 2008.

It has grown into a high-profile gallery of silent protests from more than 13,000 people posing for equality white clothing against a white background with tape over their mouth.

The campaign has also attracted such celebrities as Miley Cyrus, Kathy Griffin, Jane Lynch, and former CNN talk show host Larry King.

'This has changed my life and allowed me to do something that I love every day,' Bouska told Gay Star News last month. 'If you love what you do, you don't have to work a day of your life. I get to do something that affects people.'



Have you ever stormed out of a Thanksgiving (or other family) dinner over an argument?
