About the event

We Are Here chronicles twenty years of queer and feminist activism in Beijing, sparked by the historic 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women. At this pivotal event, the first-ever lesbian tent at a UN NGO Forum was created, providing a space for 300 lesbian women from around the world to share ideas, forge connections, and affirm identities. This gathering sparked the vibrant lala (LBT) movement in China.  The documentary delves into the evolution of this movement, unravelling the complex relationship between feminist and queer activism. It explores the potential for a queer feminist politics in China, documenting the struggles, triumphs, and enduring spirit of activists who continue to push for equality and justice.
