"I'm going to keep going till laws that discriminate against the LGBTQ community get changed," says New York Times Magazine photographer iO Tillett Wright about her portraiture project "Self Evident Truths."  For the project, Tillet Wright plans to  photograph as many people as possible who fall within the LGBTQ spectrum in order to "to humanize them, it's the same concept as the AIDS quilt." It began as a single portrait of her muse and friend Camilla, hung as part of the "Manifest Equality" show that went up in March of 2010 in LA, but has since transformed into what she hopes will develop into a national tour supported by exhibits and a possible book. Before she takes  350 of the portraits to exhibit at Coachella next week, Tillett Wright is shooting here over the weekend with support from the Human Rights Campaign and is hoping you'll stop by, "If you fall anywhere on the spectrum, we want to take your picture," she says.
