I have recieved an email advertising the viewing of the above named movie. It is a film by Lee Mun Wah, and it focuses primarily as I understand it on the issue of sexuality and sexual orientation. I think it will contribute to the development of discourse in our society on this issue, which I believe to be one of the many axes of oppression that continue to beset or society and keep it shackled to a colonial mentality and subservience.
The movie will be showing at the BUEI auditorium on Thursday, June 7th, 2007.
It starts at 7pm, and is free although donations are appreciated to help cover the cost of renting the auditorium.
I wrote an article about this on the Progressive Minds site, which goes into some detail about my thoughts on sexuality as a part of the axes of oppression that we need to deal with. I won’t repeat it all here, but essentially it is my opinion that prejudices around sexual orientation need to be combatted as part of building that new society of true democracy.
