Literature: The Idiosyncratic behaviours of the LGBTQIA community: The next chapter is about, as Bill says, the ‘Friends of Dorothy’ – the idiosyncratic behaviours of the LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual) community. Bill loves Thailand for a myriad of reasons, one of them being that people here are accepted, no matter their race or sexual orientation. Here one sees the community in Thailand through Bill’s eyes, showing many of his and his husband Jirachai’s friends whom Bill asks to model on weekends at his home Baan Botanica. Many of these paintings show two of Bill’s muses: a Brazilian model named Gui who got stuck in Bangkok due to COVID, and an American friend named Trey, also an artist, who lives here in Bangkok. This is very light-hearted and funny. As in his hotel design, Bill loves to show people things they might not expect!
