GASPP: A Gay Anthology of Singapore Poetry & Prose


GASPP: A Gay Anthology of Singapore Poetry & Prose
edited by Ng Yi-Sheng, Dominic Chua, Irene Oh & Jasmine Seah
published by The Literary Centre


GASPP: A Gay Anthology of Singapore Poetry and Prose is Singapore's first anthology of writers who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and otherwise queer. It's the combined work of 35 authors, translators and editors, who've contributed poetry, short fiction, memoirs, essays and experimental writing in English, Mandarin and Malay.

Between these covers, you’ll meet a loving couple struck by HIV, a lesbian lawyer confronted by her past, a voyeur in a New York library, an alarmed government censor, and a bomoh with a magic formula that keeps gay men faithful.

Romantic, sensual, funny and bizarre, these works are a testament to the range of voices that constitute queer literature in Singapore today. Featured writers include Johann S. Lee, Ovidia Yu, Alfian Sa’at, Ng Yi-Sheng and Adrianna Tan.
