Intimate Strangers showcases the nonfiction work of fifteen writers from Eastern Asia living life on their own authentic terms. Sanctuary is a celebration of the creativity and diversity of the continent’s LGBT+ writing, drawn from both established and emerging authors in ten countries and territories.

Contributors to these two Asian LGBT+ anthologies share their honest and intimate accounts of life as they navigate the multiplicity of cultures and values in the region and beyond. Writers presenting their work include Jenna Collett, Edward Gunawan, Beatrice Wong and Simon Wu, among others.
