Transexual Beauty Queen

The NST reported that 21-year-old Tanyarat Jirapatpakon was today named Miss International Queen of 2007, beating 23 transsexuals who had come Pattaya, Thailand from as far as Germany and Puerto Rico for an opportunity to win the diamond crown.

Thai transsexuals known in Thailand as “kathoey,” or the third gender, have slowly been leaving cabarets for mainstream success in music and other endeavours, helped in part by the popularity of beauty contests.
