Soy Milk and Honey 蜂蜜豆漿 centres an intimate act of care between an Australian Born Cantonese and a Hong Kong immigrant. As they peel off each other’s ‘skin,’ they tread through how embodied heritage and traditions intersects with present political landscapes. Their whispered fears, loud giggles, candid confessions and whimpers of pain depict the conflicting understanding of being a queer Cantonese couple. Queer love becomes a space to free their bodies from the assault of being a decorated, sexualised objected that only comes to life when she is submissive and docile. They peel off and acknowledge the lack of energy in revolting to exist, or to only be valued when desired by men. Desiring each other, protecting and being protected by another asian woman becomes a way to dissolve their collective trauma.
