We are a group of young Thais who set up @TravelMe--a local organization which is dedicated to promoting Thai culture and local life through various experiences on Tripadvisor.
Transgender community might be a "sensitive" topic but it is one of the most important element of thai culture. Travelers tend to associate "Lady-boy" with Calypso Cabaret, but it cannot sum up the true story of this community.
We have been grown up with many friends who are brace enough to follow their hearts and decide to undergo transgender process. One of our transgender friends will join this one-on-one conversation experience, and we would like to let you know a true transgender community by sharing their personal stories and efforts made by the whole society to maintain a free and comfortable environment for transgender community.
We will invite one of our transgender friends to join this one-on-one experience. Candy, a young village girl with a big dream, moved to Chiangmai to become a professional dancer. As she said, "Be who you are, not what they think you should be."
