NOH8 campaign

Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz and his wife Ashlee Simpson Wentz have posed for a portrait for California's NOH8 campaign, which seeks to overturn the state's ban on gay marriage.

In the portrait, Ashlee holds a wedding veil and the couple appear with duct tape over their mouths to symbolize the silencing of the gay community's voices on the matter.

The couple have been outspoken supporters of over turning Prop 8, which bans gay marriage in CA. They also took part in a protest in Hollywood last month when the California Supreme Court upheld the ban on same-sex marriage.
