Manchester Pride: Film Screening of Queer China, Comrade China (2008, Ciu Zi'en)

Tickets £4 include a glass of wine or tea on arrival.

Queer China, 'Comrade China' (2008) is a documentary by Cui Zi'en. It traces the changes and developments in LGBT culture that took place in China over the previous 80 years.

Unlike any before this ground-breaking film explores the historical milestones and ongoing advocacy efforts of the Chinese LGBT community. The film culminates with the submission of Dr. Li Yinhe's Same-sex Marriage Bill to the Legislative Affairs Commission of the National People's Congress in 2003. A major landmark in the ongoing struggle for acceptance of queer identity in China.

This film screening is run in association with Manchester Pride.
