Imagining Gay Paradise

Prince Vajiravudh left England in the early 1900s to return to Siam, including a month long tour of the USA. His refusal to pursue relationships with women distressed his mother the queen. At his palace of Saranrom, Vajiravudh would imagine and create his own island home populated by young men who were not from the royal family. At Saranrom, he would begin to deploy the strategy he would use to link the oppositional narratives he now needed both to write and to live.

Keywords:   Vajiravudh, Saransom, Britain plays, Siam, royal family
