"William Yang has been combining his skills as a writer and a visual artist since 1989 when he began to perform monologues with slide projection in the theatre. Sadness, wove together two themes: the discovery of his Chinese heritage, and the rituals of dying and death in Sydney. It has toured successfully nationally and internationally."
"In addition to his famed monologues, William Yang regularly exhibits his photographic works. His rich and celebratory images of the gay community in Sydney from the seventies to the present reveal a world of personal and sexual expression."
