Podcast: “Alex” on growing up gay in Myanmar and resisting military rule

DVB VOX POP

“Alex” is a former street kid who shares his life story about growing up gay in Myanmar. He hustled to earn a living, learned English, and worked many jobs until he ended up at a gay massage parlour before the 2021 military coup. He joined the anti-coup protests, and after the violent military crackdown, he fled to the Thai-Myanmar border to join the resistance along with many other young people of his generation.
