Please join API Equality and CAA on September 22nd for a special screening of “Tongzhi In Love”, the new documentary by Academy Award Winner Ruby Yang. Come mix and mingle with staff and supporters at the El Rio Bar in the Mission and enjoy the documentary after sunset in the patio.

This event will help us raise some much needed funds for API Equality to continue fighting to preserve the freedom to marry for all and raising awareness about LGBT Issues within the API Community. For more info, visit http://www.apiequality.org

In “Tongzhi in Love” (f.k.a. A Double Life), their latest and most lyrical film yet, the Oscar-winning team of director Ruby Yang and producer Thomas Lennon have captured an intimate, poignant portrait of three young men navigating the precarious dilemmas of living out and gay in modern China, torn between the lure of big city life and the powerful demands of generations of cultural tradition. Frog and his friends, Feng and Ze, live and work in cosmopolitan Beijing, reveling in a level of freedom that sophisticated urban life affords. Yet a Chinese son’s solemn duty is to produce a child and to carry forward his family’s line and name. Does their relative freedom and happiness come at the expense of their parents and centuries of cultural tradition? Can they live out and be happy and still be “good sons”? China’s laws limiting most families to a single child only compounds pressures on gay men, many of whom resort to sham marriages. - courtesy of Frameline

Fresh from its sold out West Coast premiere at the 2008 Frameline LGBT Film Festival, CAA and API Equality are excited to be able to hold another screening for our guests.
