Boys from the Shan State

For many gay foreigners, one of Chiang Mai’s biggest attractions are the go-go bars and their boys from Burma’s Shan State. Unlike Bangkok or Pattaya, the gay host bars of Chiang Mai are staffed almost exclusively by ethnic Tai Yai (SHan) guys which have offer that special Shan magic not found elsewhere. In the latest issue (Issue 80) of Thai Puan, Thailand’s gay community magazine David Edwards provides a fascinating insight into the Shan and some background to Chiang Mai’s go-go boys. You can read Thai Puan Issue 80 online.
