Nikki & Jillian took time out of their ‘Awkward’ schedules to stand up against discrimination.

Nikki DeLoach and Jillian Rose Reed, two of the funniest stars from MTV’s hit series Awkward, recently showed their support for same-sex marriage by posing for “NOH8” portraits — and now has the exclusive honor of unveiling them to you! This was a first for Nikki, who was thrilled to be joining the iconic campaign, while Jillian had already done one portrait on her own.

Created in 2008 by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley, the campaign was intended to serve as a silent protest against Proposition 8, which amended the Constitution to ban same-sex marriage.

Since its inception, the “NOH8” campaign has amassed more than 20,000 portraits — now including Nikki’s and Jillian’s!

And because I love you all so much, here are additional individual portraits of Nikki and Jillian:

We love when our favorite TV stars are also passionate about making the world a better, more tolerant place. Keep up the good work, ladies!
