L'artiste iO Tillett Wright a photographié 2000 personne qui se placent quelque part dans le spectre LGBT, et a demandé à beaucoup d'entre eux : Pouvez-vous quantifier, en pourcentage, votre degré d'hétéro ou d'homosexualité ? Il se trouve qu'une majorité se considère comme appartenante à la zone "grise", ni 100% gay, ni 100% hétéro. Ce qui pose un vrai problème en termes de discrimination: Où tracer la ligne? (Filmé à 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. Full bio
