Help donate to Proudly Asian Theatre and Loading Docs' BOOSTED campaign to create a short documentary exploring the sexy side of Asian men
Does race play a factor when you're on Tinder, checking someone out on the streets or trying to get lucky on a Saturday night?
Meet our friends and family members. They're Asian dudes. They have sex. They think about sex. They're talking about sex on camera.
Why? Sex is a wild, intimate, awkward and ultimately universal experience that has been stolen from Asian men on our screens. White washing and stereotyping in film often creates a mainstream media that sidelines stories from minority groups. It's rare to see Asian men on screen just being themselves.
We are delving deep and talking dirty to Asian Men in New Zealand to flip the script. These are their experiences, perspectives and stories on sex and dating.
It will be funny, wild, intimate and a little bit awkward. Much like sex.
Help us lift the lid on race and sexual preference as we show the side of Asian men we seldom get to see - the sexy side.
Asian Men Talk About Sex has been selected by the Loading Docs Initiative, an incredible launch pad for NZ filmmakers. Because they wanted to see this film get made too, Loading Docs, along with princpal partner NZ on Air, the New Zealand Film Commision, and Te Mangai Paho, have started us out with an awesome $4,000 dollars. However, we don't get that money unless we can reach our Boosted campaign goal of $2000. When we reach our goal, the filming can finally begin!
Thank you for taking the time to check out our project's profile. Every little bit will help us in telling this story in the best way possible and we greatly appreciate your support!
Proudly Asian Theatre is an exciting new theatre company dedicated to giving a voice to Asian theatre artists in New Zealand.
PAT's aim is to explore, celebrate and honour the vital stories and unanswered questions at the heart of plays with Asian roots, and in turn inspire the growth of diverse new contemporary works in the New Zealand theatrical landscape.
In 2013, PAT presented the first New Zealand production of David Henry Hwang's Obie Award winning play FOB at The Basement. In 2014 PAT produced a sold-out season of Renee Liang's Lantern at The Musgrove as part of the 2014 Auckland Lantern Festival. Later in the year, they took home four awards including Best Independent Theatre Company and Best Director at the 2014 Short+Sweet Festival for their piece Call of the Sparrows. In 2016, they debuted a full length version of their award winning short with help from Auckland Live, Creative New Zealand, Foundation North and UNITEC.
