I LIKE DREAMING is a confession about the pleasures of cruising straight acting, straight appearing men. Structured around the retelling of an (autobiographical) story about a public sexual encounter, I LIKE DREAMING seeks to make observations about the relationships between race/class/cultural identity.
“Blurring the line between reverie and reality, I LIKE DREAMING suggests that for most of us, life doesn’t take place in the fixed territories of conferred identity, but moves dramatically through spaces that often seem like they can’t be named.”
— Lawrence Chua, Village Voice, New York, 1994
