故事长片 / This Love – An LGBT Fake-Marriage Story
“This Love” is a theatre play which tells the emotional story of a couple of LGBT lovers who engage in a fake marriage. In October and November 2012, it was publicly performed in an underground theater in Shanghai – all 5 performances were sold out. The play caused a whole lot of discussions in the LGBT community, and also helped a whole lot of straight people to understand the LGBT community.
The play proved to be a huge motivational success for the “this love theater troupe”, which can be reached on Weibo @此爱剧社. The theater troupe is an amateur group founded by both LGBT and straight people, and includes people from all walks of life. The troupe aims to produce works reflecting the LGBT living situation, and is a non-profit organization.
This Love Theater Troupe hopes that their play can give people considering entering a fake marriage some food for thought.
