What you'll do

You could check our face to face experience since Nov , 2018 with 87 reviews : https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/374573

Sit down for a conversation about gender identity. The Kratoey, or Ladyboys, are a cultural draw in Thailand. While they’re mainly known for their dance shows, this is your chance to sit down with a local Ladyboy and discuss gender identity and the country’s transgender community.

I will start with briefing the history of transgender in Thailand. When I was growing up. We were not accepted transgender like nowadays. There were many movements which included one of the first popular Thai movie that made more than 100 million baht in revenue(Trans movie available on Netflix). After that things had changed. And now our level of acceptance of transgender is on the top of the world. Many more detail to share in our first 30mins session.

Then my co host(Khun Jah) will share her life story that she has passed through since old time until now. You could ask any question during our conversation. Following the discussion, we can talk further.

And I will share more information to you plus asking for idea to make our transgender museum in the future.

Hello good friends around the world ,

My name is Petz. I started hosting "The Iron lady" experience on Airbnb since November 2018. It began with many of my guests knew that "The Ladyboy", or transgender woman, is widely known and well-integrated in Thai society.

However, none of them know that they weren’t accepted at all until 20 years ago. I personally grew up with friends who later decided to undergo the transgender process, which inspired me to create this experience and share stories.

There are a lot more of history and culture behind our harmonious lifestyle of transgender society. You would be surprised and will learn "why drag queen is not popular in Thailand" after we finish our session.

I’ve invited my transgender friend—who has been working with a dance crew for many years—to join us for our online experience.

This was an eye-opening and very memorable experience learning about the transgender community in Thailand. In a time where there is so much divide, this experience presented many wonderful and touching stories on love, kindness and acceptance. Thank you again, Petz and Jah, for sharing your stories.
