China's Pride (English subtitles)

After living six years in China, two Spanish journalists decide, by their own means, to record a documentary about the situation of homosexuality in the Asian country. Through interviews with several representatives of Beijing and Shanghai LGBT groups and personal testimonies, a context is described that, although not as repressive as one might think, is marked by ignorance, tradition, prejudice , the indifference of society, censorship and lack of sex education, among other aspects. In the hope of changing their sexual orientation, some people go through conversion therapies. The documentary gives voice to a minority group in search of recognition of their rights and their freedom.
