Ladyboys: Behind the scenes of a cabaret show Chiang Mai
Every day on stage in a small cabaret in Chiang Mai, Thailand, performances occur Kato. You ask who they are? In Thailand the ladyboys think people of the «third sex» (however they should not be confused with transvestites). Men who are called ladyboys, aspire to be like women, and if before this word was considered a curse, then over time acquired an ironic character. Ladyboys are experiencing a series of painful treatments, from hormone therapy to operations on the genitals.
People of the «third sex» — a usual phenomenon for Thailand. Often ladyboys have become famous models, movie stars. For Kato, there is only one serious problem — due to hormonal disorders, many of them do not live up to 40 years.
