十个青春坦坦荡荡 少年人,十段情趣横生娓娓道来的人生故事,生于90年代的他们/她们,可以为自己说话,为自己思考,他们/她们中五个人喜欢异性,四个人喜欢同性,一个人 两性都喜欢,他们/她们聚在一起谈论家庭,教育,爱情,性,未来。如果说当代大学生是未来的希望,通过他们/她们十个人的直面告白,我们相信未来是一个值 得期待的东西。

In this fascinating documentary, Queer Comrades invites 10 university students coming from different places in China to give you a glimpse into the challenges and prospects for young people nowadays.  4 of them are gay, 5 of them are straight, and 1 of them is bisexual – they all agreed to give a no-holds-barred account of their innermost thoughts on family, education, love, sex and future.

Does the future belong to the young?  We believe it does, and from what we’ve heard, it’s going to be a bright one.



Bio-filmography of Director:
Xiaogang was born and raised in Xinjiang, China. He was trained as an actor at the drama department of the Xinjiang Arts Institute in Urumqi and at the Shanghai Drama Academy. Having a passion for community work and a drive to contribute to social change, Xiao Gang has continually searched for meaningful ways to share his drama skills with others and to use them in socially relevant ways.

After finishing his studies, he moved to Beijing where he starred in various socially engaging theatre plays and movies. He was a drama teacher at various schools and universities and also successfully developed and implemented a program of drama workshops for different Beijing NGOs. He continues to volunteer for NGOs based in Beijing, and has been a consultant for UNICEF since 2005.

During recent years he started to engage himself on the production side of various film- and other productions benefiting different social movements in China. His most recent feats include the co-production of “I Want to Grow Old in China”(documentary) and the founding of the LGBT webcast “Queer Comrades”, for which he hosted and directed more than 45 half-hour episodes.


Director’s Statement:
In “The Next Generation”, five LGBT and five non-LGBT university students share their innermost thoughts on family, education, love, sex and future.  Their honest accounts invite the audience to think about whether and how these basic parts of life are linked to sexual identity.
