John Goss, along with partners from Singapore and Thailand, founded Utopia, Southeast Asia's first gay and lesbian center, in Bangkok in 1994. A year later he launched the Utopia-Asia.com web portal which has grown over the last decade to become the Internet's most respected GLBT resource for Asia. An artist and recipient of a US National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, John's photographs were recently published in the landmark cultural book, Very Thai (2005), and were shown in a solo exhibition, Sacred Realm, at the Four Seasons Hotel, Bangkok (2005).
