Did you know that in 29 states in the USA you can legally be fired for your sexuality?
Self Evident Truths is a project that began in 2010 by New York City artist iO Tillett Wright who brings to light such facts.
She aims to take portraits of anyone who remotely fits into the LGBTQ spectrum showing “the humanity that exists in every one of us through the simplicity of a face.”
The project aims to capture the faces of over 4000 people all over the US, having started NYC at 300.
“All men are created equal, it’s written in the Declaration of Independence. We’re failing as a nation to uphold the morals upon which we were founded,” says Wright.
“This is my contribution to the civil rights fight of my generation.”
