Join me online to watch and discuss a TED Talk with a LGBTQ+ theme.
iO Tillett Wright has photographed 2000 people who consider themselves somewhere on the LGBTQ spectrum – and asked many of them: “Can you assign a percentage to how gay or straight you are?”. Most people, it turns out, consider themselves to exist in the grey areas of sexuality, not 100% gay or straight. Which presents a real problem when it comes to discrimination: where do you draw the line?
