Thailand Transgendered “Ladyboys”


Thailand Transgendered "Ladyboys"

Wittaya Jannoi (21) in class. He is a marketing student and hopes to change his gender after he
finishes his studies at Suan Dusit university. He sais: “I’m happy here. We can be ourselves
because we don’t have to hide. My mother said, ‘Graduate first, then you can do what you
want’.” Like many transgender students, he learnt about the university through the beauty
pageant. “I couldn’t wait to come here.”
In Suan Dusit University in Bangkok, ladyboys feel free to be themselves by getting dressed in
girls’ uniforms and behaving in a feminning way. The University’s policy of accepting them as
equal to other students, has made it so popular that it now has about 100 transgender
students studuing in it’s faculties. 8 January 2009. Bangkok, Thailand
