Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays or Bah Humbug! Up to you! Whatever your brand of seasonal cheer, we’ve got a bumper package that is a festive feast just for you. Brian Baxter has written a special profile of Sir Ian McKellan whose second Hobbit movie, The Desolation of Smaug, opens this month and we embark on a grand tour of gay Thailand: ‘OUT and about in Gay Thailand-Eat, Drink, Sleep & be Merry!’ As the New Year approaches, Darika looks younger courtesy of RMS and Kenneth Dobson shares a short story that features a Santa in Thailand!
At the close of the year, I would like to offer my personal thanks to the tens of thousands of you who have supported OUT iT over the last 12 months by reading the printed magazine, logging on to www.out-in-thailand.com or participating on our Facebook and Twitter feeds. Of course, there’s a special thanks to all our sponsors without whom, there would be no magazine!
