WATCH: Poject Gelb

Project Gelb explores the dating experiences of gay Asians in Canada.

Project Gelb screened at the 2017 Vancouver Queer Film Festival. The 43-minute documentary was originally released in 2015 and it explores the dating experiences of 8 Asian men.

The men, from 20 to 68 years old, detail their experiences of dating as Asian men in a society where being Asian is being a minority

“I was either fetishized or hated, or just like ignored,” said filmmaker Francis Luta, who interviewed many gay Asian guys in Toronto, Canada about their own experiences of racism.
