"Editor Michael Luongo introduces us to the sights, sounds and smells of the Middle East with an interesting slant. Interweaving both the personal and the political, this book looks at homosexuality, Islam and the world we find ourselves in now seen through the personal experiences of gay men in the US, Europe, and from the Middle East.
"From Morocco to Mauritania, to Oman, and then on to Bangladesh, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, 'Gay Travels in the Moslem World' gives us unique window into, what at first glance, seems to be a closed and deeply closeted world. Ranging from the sensual and the poetic to the informative, and also to the heavily didactic, this collection gets right to the heart of what it actually means to be 'gay' in these Muslim societies."
