Love Intersections

Love Intersections is a media arts collective made up of queer artists of colour, who use artistic practice to share stories of queer, trans and intersex people, living, dancing, and breathing in the margins. We believe in building community, instead of building barriers, and working together to lift up voices in our community. We believe that intersectionality is a verb and a call to action, and we strive to embody that responsibility in our arts practice as much as we can. Our desire is to provoke artful change through employing a lens of love in all that we do.

Yellow Peril: Queer Destiny is a new short documentary from local filmmakers Love Intersections that probes the nuances of Queer Chinese Canadian identity. The film investigates how being part of a distant diaspora, as well as being othered as outsiders in Canada, informs the racial and queer identities of the subjects. We follow local drag artist Kendall Yan, otherwise known as Maiden China, along with other local queer Chinese performers and activists as their intimate interviews reveal the ways in which being “marked” as the embodiment of femininity, to the lack of representation, to sexual racism, informs the forging of identities by queer Chinese Canadians.

Directors Jen Sungshine and David Ng of Love Intersections and interviewees will be in attendance for a Q&A.
