Io Tillett Wright’s Project: “We Are You” – May 21, 2014

Capricious 88’s “The Show Must Go On” participant iO Tillett Wright, sets off on a whirlwind tour of the United States to photograph exactly 10,000 people who identify “anywhere on the LGBTQ spectrum.”

So far, she has taken her camera to 51 cities and captured a diverse range of nearly 5,000 subjects in an effort to “humanize us for those that think they don’t know any LGBT people.” Once she snaps the final shot, she plans to take all 10,000 portraits to Washington, D.C. and lay them out in an art installation on the National Mall in front of the Washington Monument.
