Event description
An event to discuss the overlapping marginalisation that Chinese queer people face against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic.

About this event

This event starts with an online screening of the documentary ‘Safe Distance’ by Jamie Chi, which explores the overlapping marginalisation that Chinese queer people face against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic and rising anti-Asian sentiments in the UK. Following the screening, we will have a panel discussion and a Q&A session with the audience, to discuss questions around the documentary, the Chinese queer community and how we can imagine and build solidarity with the mainstream queer communities and organisations as we enter the ‘post-Covid’ era.

The panellists include Jamie Chi, director of ‘Safe Distance’, Qiu Bai, founder of Queer China UK, Scarlett Ng, researcher of Chinese queer migration and PhD candidate in Sociology at the University of Oxford, and Hsien Chew, coordinator for Proud Voices Asia and Pinkdot London.

Organiser of Safe Distance: Queer and Chinese in the time of Covid

Welcome to queer/disrupt.

We are a queer community based in the UK, giving space and voice to members of the LGBTQ+ family and marginalised groups both locally and worldwide.

We run virtual events, competitions, host podcasts and publish blog posts. We also participate and collaborate with many other queer and LGBTQ+ groups.

We want to disrupt what it means to be queer, and you can get involved by contributing to our community or just attending our exciting events. See our links in the slideshow or in the menu for examples of the kind of work we do, and feel free to contact us.
