Dr Hongwei Bao Interviewed on Queer Culture in Shanghai

Dr Hongwei Bao, Department of Culture, Film and Media,  was recently interviewed by China’s leading English-language lifestyle magazine, City Weekend. In his interview, Dr Bao commented on the success of this year’s Shanghai Queer Film Festival, one of the two parallel queer film festivals in Shanghai. He sees it as indication of local queer community’s conscious efforts of community building and cultural production, in the context of a booming urban ‘pink economy’ and Chinese government’s increasing control on media and grassroots mobilisation.
