From here, the date goes down one of three paths: the "adjusted guy," who's just making conversation and wants to know more about me--a very rare find; the "rice queen," who especially seeks out Asians and needs confirmation that he's got one; or the "minute rice queen," who doesn't generally like Asians, seems disappointed with my answer, and must decide whether to make an exception in my case.
Star player: At least five new queer-related works: Chic and Sassy: The Higher the Hair, The Closer to God, the tale of two "fresh-faced Texas trailer-park drag queens" who enter a play-writing contest; a pairing of new one-act plays by Christopher Shinn (Sleepers) and David Greenspan (Five Frozen Embryos); Sticky Rice Queen, touted as addressing Asian identity crises in the gay world; and the irresistibly titled It's Not My Fault, It Was on Fire When I Got There, a comedy revolving round a Midwestern lesbian commitment ceremony.
I commend you for running Jim Nawrocki's excellent essay, "Rice queens and the men who love them," (March-April, 2002): It is hoped that this essay will help elevate the discussion beyond the usual Asian Study's vilification of all rice queens, or the exclusive gay male PAPI [Philippine, Asian, Pacific Island] groups who often portray rice queens as the sole source of their problems with stereotyping.
