Filmmaker Hieu Tran’s new short film, Squared, tries to eliminate all those stereotypes gay men make about the people they meet and hook up with. Plus, it looks kinda hot.
According to Tran:
“From my dating experiences, I was bothered when guys called me their “Geisha” and other derogatory terms. I also often hear people ask gay couples, “Who’s the woman in the relationship?” and point to the Asian guy. Society often objectifies Asians, especially gay Asians, and view them as submissive, feminine and passive.
With “Squared,” I want to show that not all Asians fit into the stereotypes that society has constructed.”
Would a wrestling match let you decide who takes over?
