Traditional first generation Chinese in Britain want their children to marry other Chinese but if you’ve grown up isolated from any Chinese community, meeting a British Chinese partner may not be easy and many BBCs are marrying out of the community. Heterosexual, lesbian and gay BBCs talk about their experiences of dating and relating and the careful negotiating around different cultural norms that inter-racial relationships may require.

One of the contributors is Sumay Hwang who runs London's leading lesbian entertainment guide Gingerbeer.

Orientations is a UK social network for lesbians and gay men of east and southeast asian heritage. Contact: james_sun90@yahoo.co.uk
