  1. OMG Tom when you were talking about moving to the “rural” part of Thailand I envisioned you coming to work each day on a rice boat.

    Sticky Rice…sounds like the queens here in West Hollywood. Kinda funny that here in the States oriental gay men are somewhat of a minority.

    Back when I was young and clubbing there was only one Los Angeles asian gay bar….Faces

    Ironically, Faces catered to white men who wanted to hook up with asian guys. Tom..you would of felt right at home in that bar.

    You know there are venomous queens all across the globe.

    I had to take a Prop-8 break. I was working myself up into a state. I had to Tigger’s anxiety pill…Seroquel. My shrink would never give me Xanax.

    Lucky you.

    Listen to my last podcast. I recap the Ron and Joe situation.

  2. I just listened to your latest podcast and your discussion about gay locals who are not prostitutes feeling embarrassed about being seen with foreigners in public resonated.

    I always tell my Caucasian friends that if they go to Asia and they meet local gay men who are very friendly (particularly in public), to always keep in mind that those people MAY expect remuneration at some point.

    It’s hard for them to understand that in local Asian gay cultures, a lot of local gay men look down on other gay men who date Caucasians. This stems partly from the fact that they don’t want to be identified with sex-for-pay boys.
