Jay DeMerit, Jordan Harvey, and Michael Boxall in the NOH8 Campaign
In early May, the NOH8 Campaign made a swing through Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver. At their Vancouver stop, Whitecaps defenders and allies Jay DeMerit, Jordan Harvey, and Michael Boxall (now with the Wellington Phoenix) all participated.
The NOH8 Campaign began as a silent protest to Proposition 8 in California, but has continued on since then to stand up for not only marriage, but all human equality.
It’s a great testament to the dedication of these players to the cause of equality that they took the time out of their schedules to be a part of the Vancouver event.
Thank you Jay, Jordan, and Michael, as well as Jay’s girlfriend Olympic skier Ashleigh McIvor who posed with him!
