Intersecting Oppression - Homophobia & Racism

The early fathers of Vancouver used homophobic laws to target South Asians and Chinese labourers?   A new short film explores this issue by examining a 1915 trial where two Sikh mill-workers, Dalip Singh and Naina Singh, were entrapped by undercover police, accused of sodomy and sent to trial. While many pieces of this queer history are lost, get a glimpse in Rex vs Singh, co-directed by John Greyson, Richard Fung, and Ali Kazimi.
