I just got home from a month-long business trip to China and India. From a cultural point of view, the trip was an eye opener. It was the first time I had seen poverty at this level.
Fellow MoHos, you don't want to be gay in India. The culture is very rigid about sex roles, and homosexuality is very much kept underground. Also, for the record, I think being a woman in India isn't advisable.
China is an amazing place. They are going to kick us in the pants economically. It's also not a great place to be gay, but certainly better than India. There are even a few gay clubs in Beijing (or so I hear).
I am very glad to be back home.
