Meinma-sha

18May12


In 1958, a prison story of U Hla was planned to film in Rangoon by Thu-kha. Ah-mya, the leading character in this gay-and-son-lover story, would be shot with a prime movie star from pre-war Burma, May Shin, in her 40s. But the plan was aborted and only stills from the project were left to record the post-war Burmese gay identity in cross-dressing. A gay community emerged in the post-war Rangoon while the nation was leading to march a Yugo-styled socialist revolution.
