Self Evident Truths

Click the tabs to see the portraits

The Self Evident Truths project is a photographic document of 10,000 people in the USA that identify as something other than 100% straight.

Created by artist iO Tillett Wright, the aim of the project is to humanize a vast community through the simplicity of their faces, showing that we come in all shapes, sizes, races, and social strata, thus making it harder for people to discriminate against us.

The project brings human stories from within the LGBTQ community to the world, so that we can begin to erase the boundaries between “Gay”, “Trans”, “Straight”, and “Other”. For a deeper understanding of the philosophy behind the project, watch iO's TED talk, “Fifty Shades Of Gay”:
