Self Evident Truths Tour Headed to California
November 3, 2011 by Maureen McCarty, HRC Associate Director of Digital Media
Photographer iO Tillett Wright’s Self Evident Truths project is on the road, shooting this November in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and they want you to participate.
The Self Evident Truths tour began as a photographic documentation of New York City’s LGBTQ community in an effort to raise awareness about equality. After shooting 350 portraits on 35 mm film, Wright sought to take the project on the road.
To help raise funds for the tour, HRC released a Self Evident Truths T-shirt series early this year featuring five prominent members of the LGBT community – musicians Tegan Quin from Tegan and Sara, JD Samson from MEN and Bianca Casady from CocoRosie; artist Terence Koh; and designer Robert Tagliapietra from Costello Tagliapietra – who have courageously lent their faces and voices to the project.
The tour will begin November 4th to 7th in San Francisco before traveling on November 11th to Los Angeles. Visit the Self Evident Truths website for more details and a complete list of tour dates.
You can also visit HRC’s store to purchase a Self Evident Truths’ exclusive t-shirt to support the project.
