Details About the talk

Die Künstlerin iO Tillett Wright fotografierte 2.000 Menschen, die sich selbst irgendwo im LBGTQ-Spektrum einordnen und fragte viele von ihnen: Können Sie angeben zu wieviel Prozent Sie homosexuell oder hetero sind? Wie sich zeigt, ordnen sich die meisten Menschen in die Grauzonen der Sexualität ein, weder 100% homo- noch heterosexuell. Wodurch ein echtes Problem entsteht was Diskrimierung betrifft: Wo zieht man die Grenze? (Gefilmt auf der TEDxWomen.)

As a child actor, iO Tillett Wright turned his shoes around in the bathroom stall so that people would think he was a boy. As a teenager, he fell in love with both women and men. His life in the gray areas of gender and sexuality deeply inform his work as an artist.
