Are you guys doing everyone in the LGBTQ community or just gay people? I ask because I'm asexual and didn't know if you guys were representing us as well... Thank you for everything! I love seeing the updates on the photo shoots!
thank you for writing in with this very important question.
First off, we want to highlight that this project doesn’t play into what is sometimes referred to as the ‘discrimination olympics’. This is not a show of ‘who has it worse’, this is just a project designed with a specific purpose in mind - to reach across the aisle to those who would legally discriminate against others because they are LGBTQ and try to generate a change of heart in them via empathy by asking them to look into the eyes of THOSE WHO ARE AFFECTED BY THEIR LAWS.
With that in mind, if you feel like you are 100% Asexual AND 100% A-romantic, then unfortunately THIS project doesn’t apply to you because you are not legally discriminated against in the USA. However, and this is very important; in no way are we trying to separate you from the LGBTQ community or tell you that you don’t belong. (We don’t, thankfully, have any power to do that.) We are simply the creators of ONE project, with ONE goal in mind, that is very specific.
This has been a tense conversation that has surfaced a few times, and we hope that this isn’t articulated in a way that causes you any feelings of hurt or ostracizing. Please remember, we aren’t the gatekeepers to entry into the LGBTQ community, so this should in no way reflect that.
Sending you all our warmest,
from the SET crew
