“In my four years of living in New York, I’ve only ever swiped right on white men."
I LOVE WHITE MEN is an interrogation of one Singaporean-Chinese woman’s self-destructive obsession with white men. In this semi-autobiographical stand-up drama, YY takes a bitingly honest look at white worship, postcolonial baggage, and "politically correct culture". She tears apart her escapades with white men in New York and delves into her experiences growing up in Singapore, throwing into question how and why we are sometimes complicit in the very things we outwardly reject—and figure out how to move forward from there.
