Different Shades of Pink

45 mins

Different Shades of Pink examines cross-cultural love through the lives of three Sydney couples. James, a white man, and his partner Paul, originally from Singapore, talk about their lives together; Howard, a Chinese man from Malaysia, and his white boyfriend, David, relive the moment they first met on Lady Jane Beach; and Dan, also a white man, recalls memories of his greatest love, Bruce, an African American man from Los Angeles.

Exploring cultural stereotypes, coming out in repressive societies, and the tricky navigation of difference, Different Shades of Pink addresses notions of self within the context of loving relationships. Humorous and intimate, it is an in-depth look at race and a celebration of love.
