Gaysia - Benjamin Law SO GOOD. somehow benjamin manages to keep a good sense of humour while talking to people spewing forth the most vile rubbbish i've heard!

i loved the descriptions of edmund, one of the pray away the gay preachers - at one point he is wearing a purple vest and pants with an embroided white shirt. yeah, okay! haha

was particularly interested by how many countries only accept homosexuality if it's presented in a very "cartoon-like" way. for example, japan aired a reality tv show where a real gay man went out looking for love but all the men he went on dates with were actors!

overall, some great, and often heartbreaking insights into how life is for queer people in asia.
