More Acceptance Of Homosexuality
It seems like the only way to learn about gay Asia is through the experience of a native who has been there. In this case, an actual gay man. In the Far East, most men, both straight and gay, have come to see that life goes on after sex. Thailand. A country known for it’s gay scene, is actually one of the few countries in the world where gay travel can be a reality. A gay strip club in Bangkok was recently shut down by authorities for not following the stipulated regulations.
Like any place else on earth, people in these countries like to dress in a way that makes them stand out from the crowd. This does not mean that they are gay, though, it means that their sexuality is not an issue in the Thai culture. Most gay men choose to dress like a woman (known as “tying” for Westerners) in order to be noticed by other men, and as a result, many cities like Bangkok, Pattaya and Hong Kong have gay Asia hotspots that anyone interested in gay travel and nightlife can visit.
One of the countries like Thailand that has created a stir in the gay travel community is Burma. For years now, the Burmese government has been suppressing the sexual rights of the gay community, and recently the government started banning gay celebrations. Since then, more travelers have started booking gay vacations and trips to this part of the world. As a result, the gay community is starting to come out of the shadows, becoming part of the social fabric of these countries like Thailand and Burma.
