Events / Bisexual Revolution: Film Screening & Debate

The Chinese LGBT movement has continuously spent little attention on bisexual topics.  Up till now, bisexual voices have seldom been heard, and there hasn’t been much focus on the stigma bisexuals have to deal with.  Time to change the present situation!

The French documentary “Bisexual Revolution” gives ample insight into bisexual topics through interviews with European and American bisexuals, LGBT activists and artists.  Its screening will be followed by a debate with several experts on bisexuality, and will discuss the current state of bisexual activism in China.

Directors: Laure Michel, Eric Wastiaux
Producer: Françoise Castro
Dialogues and narration : French, English

Synopsis:
Believe it or not, Mick Jagger was not the first bisexual. In fact, ‘going both ways’ dates back to ancient Greece, when heterosexuality was not the norm. This fascinating documentary, featuring John Cameron Mitchell and French pop star Yelle, explores and uncovers the history and modern-day perceptions of this often misunderstood culture. Interviews with prominent artists, designers, and writers are interspersed with archival footage from around the world.
