The hero of Peter Jackson's fascinating narrative of Asian gay culture is 'Uncle Go', which was the pen name of a popular magazine editor who, despite being avowedly heterosexual, was tolerant of all sexual practices and whose 'agony uncle' columns in the 1970s provided unique spaces in the national press for Thailand's gays, lesbians and transgenders (kathoeys) to speak for themselves in public. By allowing the voices of alternative sexualities to be heard, Uncle Go emerged as Thailand's champion of gender equality and sexual rights.
