Sex Migrants: Paul Wong's Video Geographies of Erotic and Cultural Displacement in Pacific Canada

by Gordon Brent Ingram

Fuse, Winter 1997, v. 20, no. 1, pp. 17-26

Paul Wong's Blending Milk & Water is lauded as representative of a variety of over looked experiences in relation to AIDS, cultural identity and displacement in Pacific Canada. The article traces the development of West Coast Canada's queer population through migration, Chinese Canadian Culture, and oppressive Canadian policies. The writer asserts that understanding AIDS issues requires an examination of culture, geography, race and gender in both a political and cultural context to be relevant. Included is a description of Blending Milk & Water, a history of its development and excerpts of dialogue from the piece.
