Lily-Rose Depp, 16, posed with iO Tillett Wright for the photographer’s Self Evident Project, which aims to amass pictures of 10,000 Americans who don’t define themselves as “100 percent straight.” Depp is the 9,958th person to take part in the project.
In the below picture, posted to Wright’s Instagram, the photographer is holding the teen model on her back while posing against a blank black background. Wright captioned the photo, “I’m so proud of my baby girl @lilyrose_depp. She decided she wanted to be in @selfevidentproject because she falls somewhere on the vast spectrum, and I couldn’t be happier to welcome her to the family.”
“She’s a tiny gem of a good human. #prouduncle #weareyou,” Wright added.
Wright plans to present the final collection of photographs in a massive art installation in front of the Washington Monument ahead of the next presidential election in 2016, according to her website. Her goal is to help put an end to discrimination against LGBTQ people and “erase the boundaries” within the community.
Depp, who was chosen as the face of Chanel earlier this year, joins her stepmother, Amber Heard, and fellow model Cara Delevingne in the Self Evident project. Delevingne, who has said in the past that she hasn’t “made a concrete decision” about her sexuality, also posed with Wright, while wearing a T-shirt featuring the campaign’s slogan: “We Are You.”
“Doesn’t matter who you are or what you believe it, we are one! Go get yourself one of these shirts right now!” the model captioned a solo picture on her Instagram.
“I’m late for National Coming Out Day but better late then never. Don’t be scared to be who you are. Please follow @iolovesyou and @selfevidentproject because #WEAREYOU,” she added.
