Research Background

Our team was particularly interested in the mid-age LGBTQ communities in the context of Shanghai, one of the most culturally inclusive cities in China. We reached out to many groups and organizations for further research.

The final documentary turned out to be feature one character - Tang Long. However, extensive footages have covered many more subjects including the Shanghai Pride Festival 2018 and frequent customers form the Lai Lai Dance Hall, the owner of which hosts one gay exclusive day per week.
