Benjamin Law - Gaysia

“One of the most surprising and entertaining voices in Australian nonfiction writing.”

Author of The Family Law and Sh*t Asian Mothers Say Benjamin Law considers himself pretty lucky to live in Australia: he can hold his boyfriend’s hand in public and lobby his politicians to recognise same-sex marriage. But as the child of migrants, he was also curious about how different life might have been had he grown up in Asia. So he set off to meet his fellow Gaysians.

Law takes his investigative duties seriously, going nude where required in gay Balinese nudist resorts, sitting backstage for hours with Thai ladyboy beauty contestants and trying Indian yoga classes designed to cure his homosexuality.

Join Benjamin Law on a wild ride around Gaysia – the first of our month-long series of events in partnership with Canberra’s SpringOUT Pride Festival.
