Stamford, CT - World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is going all out in showing its support for LGBT equality by teaming up with the NOH8 campaign, a charity organization whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest.

WWE professional wrestler Darren Young came out publicly last year, making him the WWE's first openly gay wrestler.

Today, with Rosser, many of WWE's most notable superstars and divas are proclaiming their support for equal rights by photos taken through NOH8 originator Adam Bouska's lens.

"I am so honored to be a part of the WWE NOH8 campaign," said Fred Rosser aka WWE Superstar, Darren Young. "The most important thing is to be able to live your life the way you want to, truthfully. NOH8 makes that possible."

Superstars and company executives from Chief Brand Officer, Stephanie McMahon and her Superstar husband, Triple H, to the cast of E!'s "Total Divas" joined the photographic protest campaign.

"Our mission at WWE is to put smiles on people's faces and we do that, in part, by participating in initiatives that help fight bullying of all kinds," remarked Stephanie McMahon, Chief Brand Officer, WWE.

"We are proud to support the LBGT community by taking part in the WWE NOH8 campaign," McMahon added.
