Sherlock - Its all fine, NOH8 by thenizu Sherlock - Its all fine, NOH8 by thenizu
I decided to "sponsor" a bit this campaign, where no one is gaining money but where maybe a lot of people could earn some respect. The NOH8 campaign started from an idea that the photographer Adam Bouska had: a form of protest against the so-called Proposition 8, a californian law that forbids same-sex people from marrying.

I'm Italian and here homosexual marriage is forbidden as well...it's also for this reason that I feel like I should keep on fighting for our rights.

Now. With this drawing, I'm not taking from granted that the two characters I chose are really gay, since a lot of faces from the showbiz sponsored this campaign as well even if they're perfectly heterosexual, but they said it themselves: it's all fine. I could have chosen anybody else (Captain Jack Harkness would fit a lot the cause,right? X3). So no wank. AND DON'T START WITH "OH THEY ARE TOGETHER, OH THEY DON'T, THEY'RE GAY FOR EACH OTHER, NO THEY DON'T etc." Just don't. Not here. I will delete your comment.

And they're not gagged because... well, John didn't have time and anyway it won't be a gag to keep Sherlock from expressing his opinion anyway.

Love is something that no one, not even a LAW, can stop.

Really beautiful. And I completely agree what you say in the description. Good sponsor ! In France, we hope to have a law that authorize same-sex people to marry. In Europe, they are waking up slowly but things are going to change, and it's really good. Beside it I love your ART ! :love:

We "hope" as well, but the road is still very long in Italy, I'm afraid. In Spain and England they already have authorized same-sex marriage, so hey, France will be the next one, I'm sure!
Thank youuu!
