Selected as one of Get Reading's 50 Books You Can’t Put Down 2012“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's also curious about how different life might have been had he grown up in Asia. So he sets off to meet his fellow Gaysians”
Following the current focus on same sex marriage and Australia’s growing love affair with the east, I decided to join, Frankie Magazine writer Benjamin Law on his non-stop adventure through Asia to meet his fellow Gaysians.
Regardless of your own personal opinions regarding homosexuality and transgender issues, Gaysia is a fascinating insight into the vibrant experiences and lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) within Asia, but specific issues and concerns arising in each country. Law travels to Indonesia (Bali), Thailand, China, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar and India, focusing a chapter solely on each. This journey takes you from going nude at Bali sex resorts, to meeting gorgeous Thai lady boys at beauty pageants. We discover gays in china who arrange sham weddings with lesbians to appease their families, partaking in Indian yoga designed to cure homosexuality , and the heartbreaking realisation that men there are 42 times more likely to contract HIV than anywhere else and may people will be unable to access care because their simply isn’t enough medication.
At times confronting and channelling the gonzo documenting style of Louis Theroux, the best thing about this book is that Law allows you to build an emotional connection to the fascinating people he meets and he allows you to feel like you are actually there with him experiencing the colourful culture first hand on this hilarious and insightful adventure.

Following the recent success and popularity of new hit TV show, Puberty Blues, I decided it was time to review the original novel on which the show’s based on.
Puberty Blues is the bestselling insight into adolescence by Gabrielle Carey and Kathy Lette. This now iconic Australian story is the semi-autobiographical adventures of 13 year old Debbie and her best friend Sue trying to be accepted into the surfie gangs of 1970’s Sydney. Although limited in length and at times difficult to follow with the distinct ‘slang’ used at the time, this is a fascinating insight into a world where only the gang and the surf counted. Relayed with rawness and at times being brutal honest, Debbie lets us into a world filled with sex, drugs and violence.
I really enjoyed Puberty Blues, sections were extremely entertaining, however other themes explored such as the
sexual violence, gang culture, destructive relationships and drug usage were concerning. Clearly this is an aspect of Australian culture that has existed. Kathy Lette and Gabrielle Carry have allowed us to experience life centred around hot boys, panel vans, straight-leg Levis, nicking off from school, getting wasted and fitting in.
