Gaysia: Adventures in the Queer East

by Benjamin Law - £12.99  Cleis Press (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781627780360 | ISBN 10: 162778036x

Benjamin Law spent nearly a year skipping between seven Asian countries, sitting backstage with Bangkok ladyboys before their beauty pageants, talking to Tokyoís superstar drag queens, marching in the heat with Mumbaiís fierce queer rights activists, listening to Melaka preachers who claim they can heal homosexuality and hanging out with Baliís moneyboys and the foreigners who hire them.
 
At once entertaining and moving, Gaysia is a wild ride and a fascinating quest by a leading travel writer. See Indonesia, Thailand, China, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar and India as never before through the eyes of gonzo anthropologist and journalist Benjamin Law.
