Description

Not man, not woman, but kathoey. This study focuses on the political economy surrounding the construction of the third gender in Thailand and opportunities available to non-binary gender identities. Analysis of the kathoey experience sheds new light on the politics of gender and identity and dispells the notion of Thailand as the "gay paradise" that many originally thought.
