A Straight Journey: days and nights in their kingdom (2015) 从黑夜到白天:为同性恋拍照时,我们聊了些什么

d

“In our Kingdom, there are only nights and never days.” Wrote a Chinese gay writer in the 80s. From 2014-2015, masamojo, a team of two photographers, who are straight people, took a journey across 11 cities in China, making portraits of 48 gays and lesbians and their families. A short film was made during the journey, documenting the stories they told in front of the camera. The portraits and short film A Straight Journey was released in April in China. It was the first time such stories were told on a major platform. It reached a huge audience (with more than 2 million retweets on one of Chinese social networks)and many Chinese saw for the first time what gays and lesbians really look like and what they have been through from the nights to the days.
A Straight Journey won the Best Film in Shanghai Pride Film Festival and is selected for Taiwan Queer Film Festival.

中国同性恋群体首次出镜

“我们的王国里,只有黑夜,没有白天。天一亮,我们的王国便隐形起来了,因为这是一个极不合法的国度:我们没有府,没有宪法,不被承认,不受尊重,我们有的只是一群乌合之众的国民。”

——白先勇

一个人不能做真实的自己,带着面具生活,被逼婚、看着自己的爱人被迫和另一个结婚,或是遇见自己喜欢的人,不顾一切地热恋。同性恋问题只是一个感情问题。

在《从黑夜到白天》这个项目里,我们来面对一个个同性恋者,讲述他们的故事。
