No Fats, No Femmes, No Asians - Free Doc Screening
No Fats, No Femmes, No Asians interrogates the popular phrase on queer social networks, apps, and dating sites to refract issues of fatphobia, masculinity, and racism. Following three individuals, this documentary film examines the specificity of gay Asian Canadian identities. Though more importantly, through these personal stories the film explores the resilient strategies of those living in complex, ambiguous intersections and how these intersections are presented.
