The Chinese LGBTQ+ filmmaker and photographer diversifying the faces of adventure

It has been particularly challenging for Frit Sarita Tam to feel comfortable in the adventure world. As a Chinese female LGBTQ+ adventurer, she very rarely sees anybody that looks like her on stages or film. She is now taking matters into her own hands, but her story is a reminder that whatever adventure is, depends on who is and is not welcomed and represented.

Frit is an adventurer and loves exploring the outdoors in as many ways as possible: climbing, hiking, skiing, cycling, paddleboarding and wild swimming. As an adventure filmmaker and photographer, she’s happiest when she also has a camera in-hand, shooting underrepresented adventure stories for her film studio, Passionfruit Pictures. She is regularly fuelled by crisps and chips.
