New York: If You Can Make Equality There, You Can Make It Anywhere

Over the weekend, New York legalized gay marriage. This is a huge step for human equality, but the fight isn’t over. There are still tons of minds to change and hurdles to jump before all Americans have the constitutional right of equality.

To help the fight, a NY city artist, iO Tillet-Wright, has set out to take over 4,000 portraits all over the country of people who are not 100% straight. With these photos, iO wants to show America the humanity in these people who are denied equality. All in hopes of changing minds and garnering support for this civil rights movement.

Please check out this project, challenge your thinking, and if you can, support the cause to make a difference!
