Elaine Chong reveals what British East Asians think about their bodies and their lives. She explores the struggles they face caught between the cultures of West and East.

Being British East Asian: Sex, Beauty & Bodies explores life inside the pressure cooker world of being a young British East Asian. Exploring body image, sex, and beauty, Elaine Chong challenges all she learned from movies, TV, and even family while growing up British East Asian and explores why the desire to “fit in” to a foreign culture while meeting the standards demanded by Asian family can leave some in an almost impossible situation.
