Xeng Lor

XENG LOR, Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, will study the history of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in Hmong villages and cities in Laos and Thailand. Lor has videotaped interviews with Hmong gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in the Upper Midwest and California. He now wishes to expand that investigation to understand what happened to GLBT Hmong in Laos and Thailand 30 to 60 years ago and what happens to them now. Did they ever marry? How did they live their lives in Laos and Thailand? He hopes to gather enough information through field research and taped conversations to move forward on his concept for a documentary film.
