Ashraf Jamal Reviews 80 Gays Around the World by Brent Meersman

80 Gays Around the WorldVerdict: carrot

As Meersman points out, “having someone break up with you is a moment of strange contradiction. In a way, it is when they finally take you into their confidence, enough to tell you the truth: I do not want this anymore. I do not want you.”
