Katheoy - Thailand's Third Gender (12/18)
At a village festival, Ayudhaya. Thailand's Transgenders, "Katheoys" live in a kind of parallel universe within Thai society.
Katheoys are biological men who have been born with distinctifly female hearts and minds. Some choose to have their anatomy 'corrected' whilst others are content to dress in womens clothing or simply give free reign to their effeminate mannerism.
