How Many People Do You Know Who Are Not 100% Straight Or Gay? More Than You Think.

Matt Orr Curated by

Sexuality is a gigantic spectrum of endless possibilities. And get this: We can choose different ways to express our sexuality based on our sexual orientation. When I was growing up, I always thought people were either "gay" or "straight" and never realized there are actually thousands of ways to express sexuality. When we put people in boxes, we miss out on all the wonderfully diverse ways that human sexuality can change and all the different ways people of any gender or sex can be compatible with one another. The possibility of combinations is endless, and this photographer thinks it's high time we all came clean about that.
