Gender Identity around the World: Thailand’s Toms

Here is a short documentary made by Coconuts.tv about tom culture in Thailand that I saw on YouTube. Tom is short for Tomboy and despite being women dressing in a masculine way, Toms don’t consider themselves to be lesbian or trans*. Toms are unique to Thailand and it’s a fascinating look into the country’s gender identity culture. It shows how changeable and fluid gender identity and also sexuality can be.

Enjoy!
