"Why are gays so rare to be seen ? Well its bcoz most gays that are seen in gay clubs in singapore or malaysia are chinese ....Indian gays are a rarety.
as a chinese , i date/am attached to/going to marry , an indian and it is fun. We now live in canada, and im back here in kl to visit my family .
and i feel my fellow chinese in malaysia and singapore are the only ones that have these types of prejudice for other than their own race(i.e indians , and others ) .In canada and the USA , chinese are not so narrow minded towards their own race .After going through your post , I asked my partner about why are there so little malaysian and singaporean indian gays in Singapore and malaysia .He told me some of his views as i say below :
Firstly ,there are many hot/sexy/hunky indians , but they are not gay . And most tamil/indian movies dont potray men as hunky , but rather "normal sized" , thus young indian boys are not "pressured to have a buff body .Unlike us , we chinese see a lot of korean or japanese models (gay or straight)in the tv and movies that are very hunky and buff, so we tend to chase that dream of being like our idols and actors . Indian men are very "gentlemanly" , meaning they dont like to be seen nude or with undies EVENTHOUGH THEY HAVE A SIX PACK OR A HOT BODY .Its different than our chinese counterpart , like Caucasians, will gladly love to do that at the beach or in a swimming pool , just walking in the undies or naked .
In my opinion, I find that many chinese in singapore and malaysia are quite chinese -educated , so they are quite ethnocentric towards only their race .But personally , i have to advise them ,.... i dont feel that chinese gays should be doing that as the gay circle is not that large , and its even more difficult when u bias by using race or skin color as we all will go haggard or age when we are old .The japanese /korean-model-like-buff-body-dream will not make us happy :(
Why am i writing this ever so lengthy post , well its because i sincerely feel that many are curious about indian gays in malaysia and singapore . Since i am attached to one , I feel i can shed some light ." from anonymous (what's your name?) xD
I totally agree with him that many Chinese at Malys & SG quite like living in their own world or aroggant?, especially they are hot and will even think they are better than other even same race with them. I still remember a gay from US that I chatted before, said one thing he doesn't like about Chinese gay at here, is they are so not united or friendly to each other. In US, if you are at gay bar or anywhere, at least everyone will have casual talk like normal friend, even though they don't know each other.
