Young? Chinese? Immigrant? Canadian? Queer? All of the above.

Immigrated to Toronto, Canada from Hong Kong in 1989 - a month after the Tiananmen Square Massacre in Beijing, China - this intimate reflection critically explores our notions of home and belonging, love, race , culture, media, gender, sexuality, and citizenship by a young queer-identified first-generation Chinese-Canadian man as he recounts his experiences of coming to Canada to his coming out - in search of freedom.
