EAT
Galle Food
Galle is full of amazing places to eat. My favourite is the gayowned Kahanda-Kanda. Otherwise try Poonie’s Kitchen or to get local, try the beach shack at Wijaya Beach.

VISIT
Brief Garden
Designed by a family friend, who built this secret garden all by himself and created a voyeur’s paradise. Visit and you’ll see.

LEARN
Equal Ground I’m proud to be a director of this organisation seeking human rights for the LGBTQI community of Sri Lanka. It’s also a great place to connect with locals and understand what it is really like to be gay in the country.
