Oct. 11 is National Coming Out Day, the anniversary of the 1987 march on Washington, D.C. in favor of gay and lesbian rights.

To mark the day, more than half a dozen of the state's congressional Democrats posed for pictures to show their opposition to California's Proposition 8, the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage.

Democrat Adam Schiff of Burbank hosted the photo shoot last month for a campaign called “NOH8 on The Hill.” Schiff said "our friends, neighbors and family members deserve to have their commitment recognized, and the NOH8 campaign is on the forefront of that important battle.”

NOH8 campaign photographer Adam Bouska took the snapshots.
