Often reduced to racist stereotypes like the model minority, kung fu master, or desexualized nerd, this documentary from Francis Luta features East, South East, and South Asian men from the greater Toronto area openly discussing struggles with both internal and external racism in the queer community and beyond. The ideal—muscular, masculine, and White—is implied when one interviewee points out the common disclaimer “no fatties, no femmes, no Asians” seen on gay dating apps. Project Gelb critically and frankly examines Asian masculinities and why it’s not simply “just a preference.”
