China Dolls is a stylish and moving portrayal of gay Asian-Australians and their often difficult journeys to self-acceptance. In the gay scene, the young and beautiful possess the greatest social power, but what is considered desirable is also influenced by race. From Calvin Klein ads to gay erotica, the dominant image is Caucasian. Asian men are either invisible or portrayed as soft and 'feminine'. This film probes the uncomfortable reality of racial stereotyping and discrimination in the gay world through interviews with Asian men who talk frankly, and often humorously, of their experiences of living within a 'double minority'
