Real stories of gay men who found love and romance in distance lands

Looking for Love in Faraway Places is a collection of true stories of gay men seeking--and finding--love and romance against overwhelming odds in exotic locations. Edited by noted travel writer Michael Luongo, this unique book is a testament to the power of gay men's love for each other in the face of cultural, physical, and legal obstacles that can make them feel like second-class citizens. These very personal stories are as varied as the continents they visit, as authors candidly recall that while love may have no boundaries, the law certainly does.

Hearts will do as they please, despite time, distance, language barriers, and extreme political, cultural, and emotional challenges. Looking for Love in Faraway Places travels through Latin America, Asia, and Europe, and closer to home in Canada and the United States with stories of gay men making and maintaining romantic connections while dealing with tremendous cost (financial and personal), cultural clashes, and illness and disease, as well as oppressive domestic and international policies governing gay marriage and immigration.

Looking for Love in Faraway Places includes:

Gabriel Schael's "Running with the Bull: A Madrid Romance"
Marc Heft's "Friends, Roman and Countrymen"
Ken Baehr's "Costumes, Customs, and One Camaro"
James W. Jones' "Trying to Stop Water with a Net"
Des Ariel's "The Shosholooza Meyl: Johannesburg to Cape Town"
Richard Burnett's "The Ukimwi Road"
Michael Luongo's "My Canterbury Tale or the House in Broadstairs"
Michael Mele's "Marcelo"
poignant selections from M.S. Hunter and Richard D. Thompson, both of whom died during the book's editing stages
and much more

Heartfelt and sometimes heartbreaking, Looking for Love in Faraway Places is a thoughtful and entertaining read for gay men interested in romantic travel and an enlightening resource for anyone interested in immigration and gay marriage.
