A artista iO Tillett Wright fotografou 2000 pessoas que se consideram algures no espetro LBGTQ e perguntou a muitas delas: "Consegue atribuir uma percentagem a quão homo ou hetero é?" Na verdade, a maior parte das pessoas considera estar nas zonas cinzentas da sexualidade e não ser 100% homo ou hetero. O que se torna um problema concreto no que toca à discriminação: onde é que traçamos o limite? (Filmado no 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
