- I and I focuses on the subject of transgender people in China In 2005, China was not willing to accept transgender people. Many of them were scared of their families learning of their sexuality and had fled their homes in the country to travel to Beijing where they eked out an existence working in gay bars. A few years later, their position underwent a dramatic change - whereas they had once had to eke out a living, hiding in the fringes of society, the next generation were proud of their sexuality and strode boldly down the streets in women's clothing. Tomoko Kikuchi had managed to enter into the underground society in Beijing, and in 2008 she traveled to Chongqing, following a Queen who had left Beijing and was now living there with the new generation of transgender.
