An update on upcoming shoots

Hi everyone!

Wow! Yesterday’s #WEAREYOU party in LA was a huge smash! We shot another 246 faces, and therewith have finished shooting in California once and for all! 

Just to clarify why that is: We will not go to the Washington Monument without having shot in ALL FIFTY STATES, which means that we have to pace ourselves. We are now at 6,851 portraits, which is phenomenal, but we still have a number of states to hit. So that’s why we won’t be back in CA or NY for this project. That being said, if you’re in NY and you want to be in it, you should come to one of the Jersey shoots, and if you’re in southern Cali, come to Vegas! 

Here are the remaining tour dates -

::Fort Wayne, Indiana - July 26th

::Pittsburgh Black Pride - July 27th

::Delaware Pride - August 2nd

::Fargo, North Dakota - August 17th

::Toledo, Ohio - August 23rd

::Las Vegas, Nevada - September 6th

::Vermont Pride in Burlington, Vermont - September 14th

::Columbia, South Carolina - September 20th

::Virginia Pride, Brownsville, Virginia - September 27th

::East coast tour, including Kentucky, West Virginia, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine - September 24th through October 2nd

So that leaves the following states free and open for your input and help to put together shoots!

Hawaii

Alaska

Mississippi

Washington

Idaho

Montana

Wyoming

Nebraska

Kansas

New Mexico

Wisconsin

We have sooooo many to edit (they each get color corrected and worked on one by one), so it takes a while. We get them up as soon as we can!

Hi there,

the aim is to point out that we are not a marginalized group of mystery freaks, we are everywhere, in every social strata, in every race, shape, size, job. We are not ‘those gays’ or ‘those trans people’, we are you. We are everyone. 

And if you’re 1% of me (straight or gay) and I’m 1% of you (straight or gay), then we are all the same thing. 

:)

Hi,

I’d like to understand the “We Are You”.
I understand it is a campaign to show that we are all equal regardless of who are the “we” and the “you”.
But, why do you have the idea that there is a separation? It seems that for you there are the “we” and the “you”.
How do you intend to convince people that we are all equal if you yourself say that there is different kinds of people?

Thanks in advance

Hi! I just really wanted to thank you. I was able to participate in SLC at the power of one conference and have been following your project ever since. I think it is truly incredible. I can't speak for everyone but I know I feel alot less alone. <3
