Unspoken: Asian Americans on Coming Out to Immigrant Parents
The film explores the challenges of talking with immigrant parents about queerness, gender identity, and sexuality. In the film, six LGBTQ Asian Americans read coming out letters that they wrote to their parents - sharing what they would say if they didn't face language and cultural barriers in communicating with family.
UNSPOKEN is available for free streaming on YouTube and Vimeo.

A 25-minute version of the film will be released in 2017 and screened at LGBTQ community events across the U.S., as a part of coming out workshops and family acceptance support groups.
