The Hong Kong Lesbian and Gay Film Festival 2019
In 1991 the legislative Council agreed to decriminalize private, adult, and consensual homosexual relations in Hong Kong.
The local movie industry suddenly had a hot new topic for their storylines and a number of films with homosexual plots were made. Unfortunately, most of those movies depicted characters with LGBTI stereotypes. Only a handful of exceptions portrayed the LGBTI community with sincerity and sensitivity. For our 30th anniversary we would like to pay tribute to films, which explored the complexity of local LGBTI issues and significantly contributed to the gay culture of Hong Kong.
