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.
Drinks Coffee or tea at Papercup Coffee House
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.
We’ll begin at a cafe near Asiatique, where you’ll get a drink and learn about the transgender community and Thai society. Afterwards, we could have a special price ticket for Calypso show and stroll the riverfront.
6月30日 星期日 從16:00到19:00。
If you want to continue to see The Calypso show, our host will help you get a special price. If you don't want to see the show, we can walk around the Asiatique area and a big market near the river.
