Last summer, 2015, our best friends hosted a gay wedding at their house. I took most of the photos for the couple. One guy is of White German ancestry, the other Asian with some Polynesian mix. In his honor a Polynesian dance troupe performed with a live ensemble under the palm trees, alongside the river. Not quite the islands, but gave at least a little of the feel.
The reception afterwards was at a restaurant owned by a friend of ours from Thailand, featuring Pan-Asian cuisine. We'll be in Key West for New Years 2017, and this same newlywed gay couple may be staying with us in our 2-bedroom suite, with the famous midnight Sushi Drop right outside our door. They haven't decided yet.
Oh, and I think I mentioned elsewhere that we just had Christmas Day dinner at their place, the guests including my husband's sister. Who herself has a native Philippine pianist boarding with her whom she sponsors, while he does college degree work here. He just returned from a Philippine tour where he was giving concerts, along with another of her young protegé boarders, a violinist from St. Petersburg, Russia.
So that in my community Asians and people of the greater Pacific area are readily accepted, I can see no prejudice. At the same time, one has to listen to the Asian guys themselves, when some say they feel they are indeed excluded. And I must admit I see few of them at the places I go. Is this because their numbers here are very low? Or is it a cultural thing, that they don't choose to frequent the gay venues that I do? Do they really feel unwelcome? I simply don't know.
