Synopsis

Protests, potlucks, and three-ways are just the \"tip of the rice bowl\" for five out Asian American lesbians recounting their adventures in sex, love, and queer activism in the San Francisco Bay Area since the 1980s.

 

 


 

 

Program Note

 Queer activism, a party with tables full of food, and sexual adventures. These may be how this group of five Asian American lesbians remember San Francisco in the 1980s. While Crystal falls hard for her PE teacher, Gisele\'s immigrant father dares her to join the 1979 Gay & Lesbian March. Helen and Lia keep a \"chart\" of the various hook ups and break ups. This honest recollection of their past is not a simple recap of the five amazing women\'s stories, but a cordial advice for the youths of this generation to turn their present into their golden days.
