Orientations: Lesbian & Gay Asians

Richard Fung

1985, 56:00 minutes, colour, English


The tape features interviews with fourteen lesbians and gay men with diverse backgrounds, lifestyles, experiences, and outlooks. The themes proceed from first gay realizations, coming out into the gay/lesbian community, an understanding of racism in the lesbian/gay/feminist communities, coping with racism in the sexual arena, relationships, cultural self-assertion through art.

After a short segment on lesbian and gay Pride Day 1984, the tape looks at the subjects in relationship to their 'ethnic' communities, workplaces, unions, solidarity groups. The final section looks at the importance of working together and specifically at the work of Lesbians of Colour and Gay Asians Toronto.
