SoupaSteak hosts book launch

Last Friday saw SoupaSteak, one of Chiangmai’s most up and coming gay venues, host a book launch party in support of political prisoners in Burma.

No easy Road: A Burmese Political Prisoner’s story chronicles Thiha Yarzar’s nearly eighteen year journey on the long road to freedom. First as a political prisoner jailed and tortured in five different Burmese prisons, and then as a political exile in Thailand

The event, which was sold out, was attended by the books author, Paul Pickrem and Thiha himself. After plentiful refreshments and a wholesome roast pork meal, diners were treated to a talk about the book by Paul and Thiha. This was supplemented with an introduction from the Best Friend Library who were there to offer copies of the book and other publicity materials and DVDs supporting the Burmese cause. Live music from some of Tiha’s fellow prisoners rounded off the event.
