In response to the dominant impression that gay people are white people, Orientationsaims to set the record straight on homosexual identity. Men and women of different Asian backgrounds speak frankly, humorously, and often poignantly about their lives as members of a minority within a minority.
Re:Orientations revisits seven of the original participants , the audience has afascinating look into the lives and thoughts of seven queer pan-Asian Canadians as they look back on a 1986 documentary in which they featured. How have they changed? And how has the world around them evolved and changed?
Director Richard Fung will be attending the event for an Q&A session after the screening.
