Gay Thailand – Nomadic Boys

We absolutely love Thailand. It’s one of our favourite places to visit in Asia. It has a mix of the best beaches, beautiful Buddhist culture, temples, and an awesome gay scene in Bangkok.

So much so that it is frequently referred to as “The Land of Smiles”, and for good reason. …

A Night Out at Asia’s Biggest Gay Circuit Party: gCircuit during Songkran

The entrance was totally unassuming at first. Arrived in a taxi to the hotel, I meandered my way through the massive lobby, up an escalator, around a corner. At first, there were few signs that nearly 20,000 gay men were here in the hotel, but as I got closer to the party entrance, that’s when I spotted them: guys in gold shorts (much too short even for this sweaty Thai weather), bulging biceps, feathers everywhere, a drag queen in platform shoes. We followed this assortment of characters around another corner and that’s when we saw the giant sign in purple and…
