Gays and Lesbians in Asia and the Pacific
Book: Gays and Lesbians in Asia and the Pacific , by Gerard Sullivan, Laurence Wai-te Leong, ISBN10: 1560247525, ISBN13: 9781560247524, Taylor & Francis, Inc., January 1995, Hardcover
In Gays and Lesbians in Asia and the Pacific, people from Australia, Japan, the Philippines, and Singapore share their unique experiences of the gay and lesbian communities and available social services. Unlike previous writings on homosexuality in the region, written by Westerners, this book offers new perspectives from "insiders" of the cultures who speak from their own lived experiences. The chapters show the changing situations in each country and provide insight into the contemporary issues surrounding gay and lesbian life in these countries.
If you don't mind slogging through a distinctly romantic, promotional account of Max Factor's life and his singular importance to Hollywood, then this book could prove interesting. The abundant photos (color and b&w) of silver screen goddesses posing with Factor's products are amusing. The text includes insights into changing make-up fashions (Factor pioneered "bee-stung" lips, by the way), movie star anecdotes, and handy beauty tips for today's woman. No bibliography.
