Thailand – Draft-Dodging Ladyboys Get Last Laugh


Via: Pattaya Daily Mail

Banglamung City Hall was chosen as the site to enlist military forces to be conscripted for the Army and Navy. The season of military conscription had come, and all the men from Banglamung who had reached age 21 came to register, both straight men and ladyboys.

The draft lottery was held on April 9-10 for the 2 sub- districts of Banglamung and Nongprue. The chairman was Lt. Col. Peerapan Chuea-asa, commander of squad 2.

The scene was very lively, with a lot of Thai males and transgender women, and also their relatives. Transgenders who had been surgically transformed into females were all exempted from military service, because their altered gender was not the same as their birth gender.

So they were all delighted.
