A documentary screening and discussion with Director He Xiaopei, organised by the Contemporary China Centre at the University of Westminster.

How do lesbians negotiate their lives as lesbians and filial daughters?  How are such contract marriages arranged? And how does the couple navigate the complicated duties and obligations of married life?

Our Marriages – Lesbians Marry Gay Men follows the negotiations, the weddings, and the lives of four lesbians for two years in a big city in the northeast of China, documenting their manoeuvres and problems. The film raises important questions and reflections concerning the institution of marriage and homosexual life in contemporary Chinese society.
