- December 17, 2013 Happy 5 Year Anniversary, NOH8 Campaign!
Posing for the NOH8 Campaign has been one of my career highlights so far, partly because it represents the need to speak out and open people’s eyes, and also because I experienced hate first-hand growing up.
The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8. The photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with “NOH8” painted on one cheek in protest. The campaign began with portraits of everyday Californians from all walks of life and soon rose to include politicians, military personnel, newlyweds, law enforcement, artists, celebrities, and many more.
Whether its a celebrity like Cindy McCain (see her official photo!) or Miley Cyrus (see her official photo!) or an everyday person like myself (see my official photo!), you can look into each person’s eyes and interpret why they are standing up for the message of equality and NOH8.Read More
- November 27, 2013 Fist Pumping in Connecticut with Reality Stars
When I go out, I’m more of a bar/lounge kind of guy, but when Mohegan Sun in Connecticut invited me and some friends to join them for the grand opening of their newest nightclub, Avalon, I couldn’t say no. Sometimes you just need to get out of the city and let loose.
For a nightclub in Connecticut, I was impressed by the Saturday night crowd at Avalon. Australian DJ Havana Brown and DJ Irie hyped up the crowd, while a few famous faces like my buddy Vinny Guadagnino from “The Jersey Shore fist pumped with Stassi Schroeder from Bravo’s “Vanderpump Rules” and designer Nicky Hilton:
You’re probably used to seeing me I’m on the red carpet in colorful or bold suits like this one or this one. For a club opening, however, I wanted something equally as vibrant and on-trend but also be able to move around. So, I opted for this Isabel Marant for H&M swoonworthy graphic print linen t-shirt ($40) that just came out. (I had to fight for this shirt at the VIP preview a few weeks ago). I paired it with leather pants from Zara and hightop sneakers from Android Homme:
