SBG 31: Mulan with Sydney Lai

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk to serial tech entrepreneur Sydney Lai (@sydneylai) about why Mulan Should've Been Gay. We debate Mulan's gender identity, bisexual icon Li Shang and why Reflection resonates with queer people everywhere. Sydney, the daughter of immigrant parents, talks about how difficult it can be coming out in an immigrant family and how it felt to see herself represented on screen with Mulan. We also talk about how devastating it is that Li Shang is cut from the reboot, how beautiful it is that gender fluid Mulan and sexually fluid Li Shang find each other and how many other Disney Princesses are GAY AF.
