Good news…. Gay Seattle joined by Imagining Gay Paradise

A companion volume to Gay Seattle has now been published and is available in hard cover, paperback and digitally.   Gay Seattle examines the ways lesbians and gay men constructed a new home in the temperate rainforest climate and culture of the Pacific Northwest despite being exiled by sodomy laws and anti-gay medical practices.The new book,  Imagining Gay Paradise: Bali, Bangkok and Cyber-Singapore takes the exploration to the tropical beaches and peninsulas of Southeast Asia, tracing a century-long saga of gay men who created an aesthetic paradise in Bali in the 1920s and 1930s, an erotic paradise called Babylon in Bangkok in the 1980s, and a cyber-paradise in Singapore at the turn of the 21st century. You can get more information and read excerpts at the site linked above.

Both books will be the topic of a reading and discussion scheduled at Seattle University, April 12, 7-9 p.m. Stay tuned for more details about that and future discussions, particularly in Bali, Bangkok, Singapore, and Amsterdam.
