What you'll do
Sit down for a one-on-one 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. After sharing the questions you’d like to ask, we’ll sit down for an hour-long, respectful dialogue with a our transgender cohost. Following the discussion, we can talk further or you could have a special price ticket for Calypso show and stroll the riverfront.
The Ladyboy, or transgender woman, is widely known and well-integrated in Thai society. However, only some of us know that they weren’t accepted 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 their stories. I’ve invited my transgender friend—who has been working with a dance crew for many years—to join us.
