Midsumma Westside 2019: Queer Asians Anonymous (7 – 9 Feb)

February 7 @ 7:30 pm - February 9 @ 9:30 pm

How does it feel to be a minority within a minority? Welcome to another group session where queer Asian men unpack issues and concerns that impact them being not only a sexual minority but also a racial minority in a predominantly White Australia.

From the eternal cultural debate of “East versus West” to the much-debated sexual racism of “No Curry, No Rice” to demystifying the Model Minority
myth and identity politics, this dramedy play looks into these issues (and more) through the eyes and voices of the men in a newly established queer Asian support group. So, fill out the sign-up sheet; pull up a chair and watch a group of queer/gay Asians (Gaysians?) discuss, opine and argue about being gay and Asian in an oh-so White gay Melbourne.
