Join FAIR and Homotracker for the official launch party of “The Shepard Fairey Equality Project” on the roof of the Andaz West Hollywood on Thurs Nov 12th to benefit marriage equality and see twenty of the celeb-customized prints unveiled…  Shepard will be DJ-ing, media and VIP’s abound, OPEN BAR, valet available, and one of the best lgbt networking and community parties of the year. To get your tickets CLICK HERE !

Over 80 entertainers, political leaders and other notables, including Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, RuPaul, and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, have customized original screen prints by noted artist Shepard Fairey. The prints are to be displayed at an event in Los Angeles in November and auctioned online at CharityBuzz.com, with all proceeds going to grassroots organizations fighting for marriage equality across the country.

An eclectic list of equality-minded celebrities — gay and straight — have signed (and in some cases customized) the original screen prints, including Robert DeNiro, Bradley Cooper, designers Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels (who signs her name Tammy Etheridge), Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pine, Natalie Portman, Lance Bass (above), Dave Matthews, Jared Leto, Charlie Sheen, and the cast of The Sarah Silverman Program.
