'Of all the continents, Asia is the gayest. Deep down, you've probably had your suspicions all along, and I'm here to tell you those suspicions are correct.' So begins Gaysia, Benjamin Law's wildly witty investigation of gay life in the biggest continent. We follow him as he takes an in-depth look at resorts for gay nudists in Bali; transexualism and three formal genders in Thailand; China's underground
gay resistance; Japan and 'the most breathtakingly messed-up porn'; religious fundamentalists of all persuasions keen on 'curing' homosexuality in Malaysia; sex workers and the spread of HIV in Myanmar; and the decriminalisation of homosexuality, gay pride parades and encounters with gay royalty and a popular spiritual guru in India.
Hilarious, perceptive, and poignant, Gaysia is a refreshing look at an aspect of Asia that has gone ignored too long.
