Nguyễn Quốc Thành
Based in Hà Nội, Nguyễn Quốc Thành explores issues of queer aesthetics and activism through photography, writing, performance, installation, clothes making and organising art events. In 2013, he founded and organised Queer Forever! – an interdisciplinary platform for sharing love and knowledge on queerness and Vietnamese culture, which is the first queer art festival in Việt Nam. Queer Forever! collaborates with individuals, groups and organisations through a regular program of talks, film screenings and art exhibitions. Queer Forever! 2016 is scheduled to take place 16-18 September 2016 in Hà Nội and will feature a mini South East Asia queer film festival and a forum on queer expression in arts in South East Asia.
