The Stories We Could Tell

Lady Boy Shows and Temples

If you visit Thailand, there are two things you MUST do. You have to visit the many beautiful temples – they really teach you a lot about Thai culture and customs; and you must see a Lady Boy show. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the term “lady boy,” it most simply means cross dresser, and sometimes means transgender, but at a lady boy show it certainly always means fun. We had the pleasure of attending such a show, which I feel confident will be James’ last. If you’ve ever been to a drag show, you can imagine what we saw! The beautiful performers did their best to lip sync to many American tunes from artists like Cher. As you can see from the photos, I had a blast, can’t say the same for James or Dad. On a more serious note, it is really admirable how open Thai people are to alternative lifestyles. Lady boys get lots of respect in Thailand.
