Publisher Comments:

From the foreword by Felice Picano

This volume makes no attempt to rival those gay travel guides that already exist. It is something different, far more intriguing: a collection of stories that aim at being what Herman Melville deemed an inside narrative. That is, what being a gay man in a foreign land really feels like, smells like, tastes like, and hurts like. The voices here might be likened to those of friends sitting around a dinner table the night before your journey who provide you with insights and warnings that only later do you discover add infinitely to your excursion.

Synopsis:

Gay writers reveal stories of their travels in these sixteen literary pieces set around the world. Here are close calls, perfect moments, unusual and erotic encounters, personal discovery, cultural exchange (and collision), and disastrous trips.

Edmund White tours via the memorabilia he and his partner gathered far and wide, Brian Bouldrey walks into Spain without a single peseta and into a second life, and fever and song mingle for Adam Klein in India. Many of the stories appear in print here for the first time.

Encompassing travel in the U.S. and abroad, Gay Travels captures the essence of travel for gay men by some of the finest contemporary writers. Regardless of their destination, gay travelers can find in this volume the perfect traveling companion.
