“I’ve always known folks who feel that they don’t fall under the LGBT umbrella, which is the reason why we keep adding more and more letters to the end of it. But identity is far more nuanced than that, especially when you ask someone about the gender identity/expression and sexuality. This photo project shows us how incredibly diverse and creative we are! Participants in this project have taught me new words through the process and I just love how that’s one of the evolving parts of it. One of my hopes is for a teenager living in a small American town or someone in Asia or Russia to look at the photo project and finally be able to put a word/s to how they’ve been feeling for a long time. I hope that the project makes folks feel more connected to one another.” – Sarah Deragon
