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.)
