After calling out her university for its homophobic campus environment, bullying from teachers and classmates, and the prominent use of LGBT+ phobic textbooks, activist Qiuyan Chen was catapulted into the spotlight of news headlines worldwide.

But this overnight fame also made her a target, as she was outed by her university tutor, and subsequently forced into conversion therapy by her parents. Fleeing to the UK, she met her partner Bling. But when Bling has to return to China, the couple fight to the ends of the earth to reunite.

Shanshan Chen’s incredible documentary charts Qiuyan’s personal journey against wider struggles faced by the Chinese-speaking queer diaspora here in the UK; an urgent call for better visibility and supportive action for these communities.
