Synopsis:
A large majority of LGBT people in mainland China remain in the closet. Most of these closet doors are kept tightly shut by pressure from friends, family, and society itself. This documentary hopes to explore the experience of coming out in China through a series of interviews with out homosexuals. The interviews touch upon the discrimination, suppression, and even violence they have endured as well as the touching moments where they experienced compassion and understanding. The documentary also covers gay rights activist and proud mother of a homosexual, Wu Youjian, who stands strongly by her son and other gay men in full support.

Out is the new in! Will you come out today?

范坡坡

导演阐述:
出柜对于大多数中国同志来说,仍然不是轻松的一件事情。特别是延续香火的传统观念,让家庭压力变得尤其沉重,这个议题可以说是当下同志人群生存环境最大的考验之一。在中国酷儿影像巡回展的过程中,我记录了很多出柜同志的悲欢离合,想与大家分享。
很巧合的是,就在影片制作的期间,我也被逼向家人出柜了。虽说这是我认为必经的一条路,但还是让自己感到惊心动魄。我更加真切地感受到,受访主人公当时的遭遇。

Director’s Statement:
For most homosexuals living in China, coming out of the closet is not a simple matter. Families place great pressure on sons to carry on their family name. Breaking this strong rooted, traditional concept of marrying and producing an heir is one of the hardest tests for homosexuals in China.

I would like to share with you the joys and sorrows of the many out homosexuals that I recorded during the China Queer Film Festival Tour.

Coincidently, during the filming of this documentary, I too came out to my family. While I believe this to be a necessary step in my life, it was still a soul stirring experience, and one that allowed me to more realistically capture the heroes and their own coming out stories in this film.
