    Kindle myportal.pro ñ Gaysia Adventures in the ueer East eBook ¹ Gaysia gaysia book, adventures free, ueer epub, east pdf, Gaysia Adventures kindle, in the kindle, Adventures in the mobile, Gaysia Adventures in the ueer East PDFThe author a gay Australian of Chinese origin travels Asia exploring some dimensions of lgbt life in a number of countries from Bali where young local men aim to score with well off white visitors to Japan where campy trans celebrities are all over TV but it’s harder to find gay people who are out in real life to Myanmar where young sex workers are felled by HIV in depressing numbers Law does a fair bit of goggling charmingly while locals try to pick him up This was published in 2012 and I noticed that some of the language around trans ness already felt a bit dated and sometimes how dialogue with locals not speaking with the author in their first language is rendered inadvertently makes them sound childlike It was an engaging read overall even if I wanted a little depth

    Kindle myportal.pro ñ Gaysia Adventures in the ueer East eBook ¹ Gaysia gaysia book, adventures free, ueer epub, east pdf, Gaysia Adventures kindle, in the kindle, Adventures in the mobile, Gaysia Adventures in the ueer East PDFWho better to talk about LGBTIA life in Asia than Benjamin Law? Openly gay and born in Australia to Chinese immigrant parents he approaches Gaysia with concern and respect not to mention the perfect dose of comedy Gaysia is a journalistic adventure into the LGBTIA nerve centre of Asia from “clothing optional” gay resorts in Bali to the homes of Chinese gays and lesbians who fake heternormative marriages to keep their identities secret Law opened my eyes to a diverse range of socio political landscapes all posing uniue challenges to the LGBTIA communityI strongly recommend listening to the audiobook version of Gaysia While the writing is clear and authoritative Law’s voice is loaded with charisma He gets the balance exactly right – he’s a comedian but he can nail the serious moments too seamless
