Film Screening: Our Marriages – Lesbians Marry Gay Men

Directed by He Xiaopei and Yuan Yuan (China, 2013), Our Marriage is an exploration of the lives of four lesbians who decided to marry gay men in order to secretly pursue their relationships with their girlfriends, while at the same time fulfilling their family’s deep-seated desire that their daughter get married and form a family with her husband.  How do contract marriages work, how do people negotiate the terms of marriage and how do they live lives as lesbians in contemporary Chinese culture?

[Message from the publisher]
A View from the Bottom: Asian American Masculinity and Sexual Representation offers a major critical reassessment of male effeminacy and its racialization in visual culture. Examining portrayals of Asian and Asian American men in Hollywood cinema, European art film, gay pornography, and experimental documentary, Nguyen Tan Hoang explores the cultural meanings that accrue to sexual positions.

Nguyen Tan Hoang is Assistant Professor of English and Film Studies at Bryn Mawr College.

Draw the Circle

Mashuq_Deen_Draw_the_Circle

“Draw the Circle” is the hilarious and moving story of how a conservative Muslim family deals with a child who defies their most basic expectations of what it means to have a daughter – and one woman’s commitment to unconditional love. Told entirely from the point of view of family and friends, yet performed by Deen himself, the show compassionately brings to life the often-ignored struggle experienced by a transgender individual’s family.

GAPIMNY, Q-WAVE, SALGA-NYC and The BEAT Festival will be a part of a special one-night only performance of Draw the Circle by community member Mashuq Deen.  We are co-organizing a pre-show displays and post-show interactive audience activities all centered around thinking about what “gender” means in our lives.

Wednesday, September 17, 7:30pm
