Curiosity got the better of me – watching a gay sex show in Bangkok.

How should a homo pack for a long-term backpacking trip?

So this is my suitcase of accessories, brimming with homo must haves such as ties, bow-ties, belts, brooches, braces, cummerbunds and err… Mexican wrestling masks. Opening this treasure of bedazzled trinkets fills me with a sense of calm. Yes, I do have the bow-tie to match the colour of my...
