Drag in Hong Kong | 2019

"Drag" is about dressing up in opposite sex, is another identity of a person - the performer. Being an international city, Hong Kong is however still not so open to this subculture which is actually a pop culture in foreign countries like the US.

This documentary aims to raise awareness and introduce this group of minorities and sub-culture in Hong Kong. People usually misunderstand drag or even disgust about drag, but drag is a kind of art, performance, and representation of gender fluidity.

The topics of sexual orientation and gender identity have been much discussed in recent times. Most Western societies are now much more open to homosexuality than in the past. Due to the growing visibility of different lifestyle concepts in social media, the idea of a flexible identity spectrum for sexuality and gender is becoming more popular.


In 2015, the word of the year selected by the American Dialect Society is a singular gender-neutral pronoun, "they". This version of "they" is the one that a person transgender or cisgender, can use when they don't feel like he or she fits quite right. "They" is getting used as a pronoun that people take for themselves to express gender fluidity or transgender identity. One subculture that fosters the development of gender fluidity in our society is Drag, wearing clothing of the opposite sex.

The documentary brings the audience to the world of drag by introducing the history of drag and its development over the years in western countries. Interestingly, there are also drag performers and TV programs in Hong Kong; yet the audience only treats those as entertainment.
