Actress Shay Mitchell has joined 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 24-year-old Mitchell currently plays Emily Fields in ABC Family's mystery drama Pretty Little Liars. Her character is considered the group's “jock” and is openly gay.

Mitchell announced on Facebook earlier this month that she had posed for the group: “Just shot for the @NOH8Campaign! Pretty stoked to see the final photo … Here's a glimpse :)”

The NOH8 Campaign is helmed by photographer-activist Adam Bouska and his partner Jeff Parshley. The pair photograph celebrities and everyday folks with their mouths duct taped and the campaign's familiar “NOH8” slogan often written on one cheek.

In her photo, Mitchell is wearing a white v-neck t-shirt.

In January, Mitchell said during a panel that she has received “very, very positive feedback” about playing a teenage lesbian.

“If I can represent the gay community in a small way, then I'm so honored and couldn't be more proud to do that,” Mitchell said.
