Kitty Tsui, Chinese American writer, poet, body builder, and lesbian activist, was a founding member of Unbound Feet, the first Asian American Women's Performance Group.

In Nice Chinese Girls Don't, Tsui brings to life her coming of age in San Francisco in the 1970s, her challenges, and her continued rise to celebrity by being re-discovered by a whole new generation of Feminists.
This is the first documentary about a Chinese American Lesbian. Kitty Tsui tells of her arrival as an immigrant to San Francisco and, amidst the anti-Vietnam war protests, finding her way to San Francisco State, which influenced her on her path as an activist and poet. An award winning author, she has penned three books and been included in over eighty anthologies worldwide. She has a forthcoming book from Sinister Wisdom with her new and old poems, and a reprint of "Words of a Woman Who Breathes Fire," a Sapphic classic.
