Summary
"This stylish and moving portrayal of gays of Asian descent in Australia explores the relationship between race and sexuality. ... probes the uncomfortable reality of racial stereotyping and discrimination in the gay world through interviews with Asian men who talk frankly, and often humorously, of their experiences living within a double minority. The filmmaker himself tells a highly personal story of his journey from denial to self acceptance."--Container notes
