GASPP 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 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. Cyril Wong, Ng Yi-Sheng and Adrianna Tan.
