Thailand is well known for its community of "kathoeys", or transgender "ladyboys". Foreigners often think that kathoeys are only to be found in bars and nightclubs, but this is incorrect. Thailand's relationship with its transgender community is complex, perhaps even unique in the world. Some have forged successful business careers and integrated well into their local community. Thai tolerance towards transgenders has a long history, but it's not entirely straightforward.
