#Giveaway : Gaysia : Adventures in the Queer East by Benjamin Law

and 
bring to you a chance to win a copy of
Gaysia : Adventures in the Queer East 
by 
Benjamin Law

About the book:

Of all the continents, Asia is the gayest. Deep down, youve probably had your suspicions all along and Im here to tell you those suspicions are correct. So begins Gaysia, Benjamin Laws wildly witty investigation of gay life in the biggest continent. We follow him as he takes an in-depth look at resorts for gay nudists in Bali; transexualism and three formal genders in Thailand; Chinas underground gay resistance; Japan and the most breathtakingly messed-up porn; religious fundamentalists of all persuasions keen on curing homosexuality in Malaysia; sex workers and the spread of HIV in Myanmar; and the decriminalisation of homosexuality, gay pride parades and encounters with gay royalty and a popular spiritual guru in India.
Hilarious, perceptive and poignant, Gaysia is a refreshing look at an aspect of Asia that has gone ignored too long.
