Description

UNSPOKEN is the collective outpouring of six queer and trans Asian Americans as they grapple with their queerness and consider what family acceptance might look like. The interviewees hail from across the Asian diaspora—from Sri Lanka and Myanmar to China and South Korea. Some are not yet out to their parents, and this film is their way of doing so. Some have tried to start conversations around their queerness, only to meet sustained denial. Others simply cannot communicate in the same language as their migrant families. In this film, they all share what they would say if one day they woke up and their families’ generational, cultural, and language barriers were gone.
