The Third Gender: A Documentary on Thailand's Transgender Community

filmed, edited, and produced by Vivienne Chen

About the Documentary

In Thailand, those who are born male but live as women ("ladyboy", "kathoey") are seemingly ubiquitious in the public sphere. I interviewed several Thai performers, activists, artists, and citizens to learn if Thailand was really the open and accepting place it appeared to be.
