Ladyboy in military draft day

It’s that time of the year again in Thailand where the army conscripts need to show up and see if they are going to be joining the ranks for anything between six months and two years.

Sounds pretty straight forward and it would be anywhere else in the world but as we know Thailand has the “third gender” and that makes for some interesting sights at the barracks as ladyboys who drew a duffer in the national conscription lottery show up to hopefully not sign on the dotted line.

As you can imagine, cocks in frocks could lead to some confusion in a 10 man tent when the troops are on exercise so the ladyboys are signed off as “mentally ill” excusing them from service.

Here are 20 photos capturing the unusual sights as the “ladies” wait patiently to be sent packing from the local army base.
