M. Butterfly Meets the Great White Hope


This article addresses the controversial issue of sexual attraction of white gays to non-whites.  The "rice queen" phenomenon is looked at by an Asian American gay activist who discusses his relationships, how gays look at race and beauty.  The essay challenges the tendency by some Asians to seek the Great White Hope for sexual satisfaction.
