Strangers No More Project

Inspired by iO Tillet Wright’s Self Evident Truths Project, The Strangers No More Project was created to promote LGBTQ inclusion in the Mennonite Church. Through this project, humanity is displayed through the simplicity of a photograph and every photograph honors a person with a story. These are the stories of our Mennonite community members; let them be strangers no more.

The Strangers No More Project hopes to travel to a variety of Mennonite communities photographing anyone who identifies as non straight and/or non cisgender. Because every story deserves to be heard, we invite you or your church to host a photo session or to support the project through monetary donations that would be used to compensate the cost of travel, printing and supplies. We hope to have a significant amount of photos taken prior to Convention in July. There will also be an opportunity to be photographed in Phoenix. If you or your church would like to participate in this project, please contact Jacklyn Wells at [email protected].

“To show the humanity that exist in everyone of us through the simplicity of a face……

I challenge you to look at the faces of these people and tell them that they deserve less than any other human being”.- iO Tillet Wright
