Here’s some more info on the removal of Li Shang if anyone needs it: https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2018/04/18/mulan-disney-bisexual-icon-removed-from-new-film/

Mimi Launder is looking for opinions from bisexual People of Colour on this character being written out of the live-action version of Mulan.  Please answer these questions below, and email  them to Mimi.Launder@independent.co.uk

If you feel happy to comment or know much about the film: 

1: How did you feel when you heard Li Shang, a bi icon, was erased from Mulan live action remake? 

2: What are your thoughts on Disney’s decision and do you think it says anything about Disney’s attitudes to LGBT+ characters? 

On bi erasure more generally:
3: How and in what ways does bi erasure impact your life?
4: Do you think the conversation on bi erasure/bisexuality excludes or ignores bi people of colour?
5: How important do you think it is to increase the representation of bisexual (and all LGBT+) people of colour in the media? Why is that important to you personally?
