This Katoey wanted to show me more of her assets but I didn't think flickr would have approved!! I had to keep telling her to put her clothes back on ;-. They are sometimes referred to as ladyboys, or as sao or phuying praphet song "a second kind of woman" , or phet thee sam third sex. The word kathoey is thought to be of Khmer origin. The term "kathoey" is not an exact equivalent of the modern western transwoman — it suggests that the person is a type of male, unlike the term sao praphet song, which suggests a female sex identity, or phet thee sam, which suggests a third gender.

In Thailand, transgender women, known as ladyboys, occupy a unique and complex role in society, one that is colored in part by misconceptions and intolerance. For Mistress , photographer Soopakorn Srisakul captures the daily life of his girlfriend and four other ladyboys, who work as bar-people and call girls in the red-light Nana district in Bangkok. With few positions hiring transgender women, ladyboys face a reduced job market, typically working in department stores, makeup counters, and cabaret venues. Many crave marriage with their lovers, which is illegal in Thailand.
