My 17 Gay Friends is a romantic comedy with experimental elements that explores the interconnected web of relationships in Beijing’s gay community, all surrounding an unseen narrator. It also pokes fun at stereotypes and labels that often cut across the LGBT community such as femininity and masculinity and how these affect our perceptions of gay people and categorizes people into distinct groups.This short narrative work was written and directed by Moxie Peng and was funded through a crowdfunding campaign on Dreamore.
