Basketball legend Isiah Thomas becomes the latest to lend his face and name to photographer Adam Bouska's striking "No H8" campaign. The legendary Detroit Pistons point guard—named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History—was joined by his son Joshua in several photos.

Joshua "Zeke" Thomas—a popular up-and-coming dj—has Tweeted his support for equality and that he was "honored" to join No 8. "Prop 8 Overturned!" he wrote on Thursday. I'm glad California has restored the right for ALL of its citizens to marry whoever they please!"
