LGBTQ* Filmmakers You Might Have Missed:
"Over the years, due to direct political action, social and economic shifts, the words we used to describe ourselves have been rescued from the derogatory usage of the mainstream…Many of us have found strength, support and love through our sexual identity. But we are by no means a homogenous community. We are split by sexual practice, gender, politics, race, culture, class, food preferences…
…I cannot claim to be Japanese. To do so would be a lie. It’s a presumption that I am somehow linked to a country that I do not even know…
But how do I define myself? How do I acknowledge all the parts of who I am? How do I define my identity without false implication?
I am a queer banana. I say this with a need to reclaim a definition which has haunted me since childhood. An insult, an accusation that one is in disguise, a traitor—yellow on the outside and white on the inside…I am of Japanese descent but I am a third generation Canadian.
…How we decide to name ourselves and what term we end up feeling comfortable with is not without its problems. In a world of constant change and evolutionary word-play, the real intent and meaning of these self-described names is sometimes lost. I call myself a “queer banana” but I know how this can be used against me. I know how this term can be misinterpreted and how by naming my identity I am still open to misunderstanding. The context and history of this term is personal and I would never use “queer banana” to describe anyone else. I believe it is important to encourage the continual process of self-examination and self-definition. Today I may be a “queer banana” but tomorrow I may not be. But whichever way I decide to describe myself, the meaning will be one of my choosing and my design.”
