Yellow Peril: Queer Destiny is a new short documentary from local filmmakers Love Intersections that probes the nuances of Queer Chinese Canadian identity. The film investigates how being part of a distant diaspora, as well as being othered as outsiders in Canada, informs the racial and queer identities of the subjects. We follow local drag artist Kendall Yan, otherwise known as Maiden China, along with other local queer Chinese performers and activists as their intimate interviews reveal the ways in which being “marked” as the embodiment of femininity, to the lack of representation, to sexual racism, informs the forging of identities by queer Chinese Canadians.
