Description


Family, love, friendship, acceptance--none of these pillars of happiness are certainties for

LGBTQ+ people. Yet, despite social and legal conventions, the fifteen writers collected here

from eastern Asia and beyond have built lives of fulfilment and joy. Intimate Strangers

showcases the nonfiction work of writers living life on their own authentic terms. By turns

experimental, nostalgic, provocative, and poignant, these stories--bringing to life devoted

daughters; boys coming of age; a transgender woman; and gay, queer, and bi parents--are

unified not only by their excellence but also by the risks the writers take. Together they form

a rich community of voices that reflects the diversity of LGBTQ+ life across the Asia - Pacific region today.
