AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This article is a stylized blend of personal history and polemical essay which investigates the relationship between race and sexuality. What starts out as a history of the narrator's experience of being a 'banana' - yellow (Chinese) on the outside and white (Caucasian) on the inside - becomes a complex exploration of the various ways in which male homosexual desire is constructed and how race is both included and excluded from western constructions of homosexuality. -- Author's abstract p. 87.
