‘America’s Next Top Model’ Whitney Thompson and Chenese Lewis Pose for NOH8 Campaign

Well, they’re at it again.

America’s Next Top Model winner Whitney Thompson and our own Chenese Lewis—who last month raised eyebrows by posing nude together for the Hollywood Chapter of the National Organization for Women’s Fifth Annual Love Your Body Day—are using their star power for another good cause.

Earlier this month, the dynamic duo slipped into celebrity photog Adam Bouska‘s L.A. studio to shoot a series of pics for his NOH8 (pronounced “No Hate”) campaign, a grassroots movement supporting same-sex marriage in the state of California.

Both models will help raise awareness for organizations that help individuals with eating disorders—Whitney as an ambassador for the National Eating Disorder Association and Chenese as an ambassador for the Binge Eating Disorder Association.

During Whitney’s most recent PLUS Model Radio appearance, she Continue reading
