While the Jackie Chamoun scandal steadily dominated social media networks on Tuesday, the hashtag #StripForJackie was born and accompanied numerous posts of photos depicting both men and women in states of partial nudity. On Wednesday, a Facebook campaign called I Am Not Naked popped up.

The page contains studio portraits of various individuals posing nude, using a “#StripForJackie” sign to cover their genitals, with text reading “I AM NOT NAKED” across the image and text stating what the subject of the photo does in life at the bottom, emphasizing that it’s not your clothes, or lack thereof, that determine who you are as a person.

The team behind the campaign are Cynthia-Maria Aramouni, who devised the concept, Mohamad Abdouni handling art direction and Tarek Moukaddem and Carl Halal behind the lens. “We've always had in mind starting such a campaign targeted against censorship, and we found that this was a good moment to launch it,” says Halal. He adds: “It's an obvious cause we're behind, one that every sane balanced well educated person should support. Censorship is ruining people's minds and making them much more frustrated, instead of its initial intention to protect them.”

Keep up with the campaigns latest developments on Facebook, and hit them up with a message if you'd like to be featured in the campaign.
