Shi Tou is a Chinese visual artist whose work reflects the intersection of feminism, queerness, and gender identity. Tou works across many mediums; her body of work includes paintings, photographs, short films, and documentaries. Her photographic series Together portrays Tou’s own friends posed in couples as if they were wedding portraits. Each of the several lesbian couples wear wedding gowns, smiling and laughing in a celebration of same-sex marriage.
Tou is currently one of the most famous lesbian activists in China, and was one of the first to come onto national television in China to discuss same-sex marriage. Her activism has led her to also organize LGBTQ conferences and conventions in mainland China.
