Pride 2022: “Regimes of Desire” Special

Happy Pride! We’re back with another episode of the Arama! Japan Podcast! This episode is a special Pride episode that features a discussion on Dr. Thomas Baudinette‘s book “Regimes of Desire: Young Gay Men, Media, and Masculinity in Tokyo.” In this episode we discussed several key points in the book including Yukio Mishima‘s lasting impact on Japanese gay men, the Japanese gay porn industry, Japanese gay men’s thoughts on Johnny & Associates, and how things are changing for LGBT people in Japan.

I am joined this episode by my co-host Hannah and Dr. Thomas Baudinette. Check it out below!
