Abstract

Shuttling queerly across multiple temporalities, Chou Katherine Hui-ling's drama depicts a romance between You Ruilang, a self-castrated female impersonator, and Xu Jifang. The dramaturgy of gender transitivity intertwines sexual identity and nationalism, making palpable the homosexuality and homosociality that occurs between homophobia and homophilia.
