Singer Courtney Love has posed for the
NOH8 Campaign, the silent protest which raises awareness and funds
for gay rights causes, including ending California's 2008
voter-approved gay marriage ban, Proposition 8.
The 47-year-old Love (born Courtney
Michelle Harrison) is the frontwoman for the alternative rock ban
Love's participation in the campaign,
however, drew jeers from several gay bloggers who said posing for a
gay rights campaign doesn't make up for past indiscretions.
“We've been Courtney fans through
thick and thin: back to when nut-job theorist swore she killed
[husband] Kurt [Cobain], through her various tangles with the law and
a variety of plastic surgeons, the America's Sweetheart album
that even she ragged on, years of paranoid rants detailing that
people were conspiring to steal from her, and even [daughter] Frances
Bean Cobain said she didn't want to hear from her anymore,” wrote
gay blog Queerty.com.
“But in the past year Courtney has
warned Lady Gaga of the perils of surrounding herself with gay men
and allowed her drummer to encourage audience members 'The Foo
Fighters are gay.'”
