Thailand's Theater of Illusion by Cognoscenti Books
In Thailand practically every town or village has several openly transsexual boys or men who dress as women and are born wfeminine characteristics. They are known by a Thai term which translates 'Women of the Second Kind', and are also often known by the English loan word 'Ladyboy'. Perhaps no other country in the world has such a large percentage of transsexuals, nor arguably does there exist any other culture where persons of the ‘third gender' can live and interact with society so freely and comfortably.
