Greetings from Bangkok, Thailand!
I am here soaking up the local TG culture …
As you might know, Thailand is considered the transgender capital of the world. The “third gender” is an accepted part of Thai society and transgenderism is everywhere – from TV celebrities, to transgender flight attendants, to foreign and Thai transwomen seen all around town.
It is SUCH a refreshing change from the U.S.!
Here are a few highlights from my trip:
|Me with some of Bangkok’s most beautiful kathoey (transgender) performers.|
|The Playhouse Theater Cabaret, featuring some of Thailand’s best kathoey (transgender) performers.|
|Thailand is a shopper’s paradise with bargains galore.||Shrine in front of a Bangkok shopping mall.|
|Incredible 150 foot long gold Reclining Buddha at the Wat Pho temple.|
I LOVE traveling and I want to encourage you to plan your own femme getaway.
It’s doesn’t matter if you travel across the world, to a transgender conference, or simply to another city in your home state … traveling is the perfect opportunity to unleash your femme self away from the routine and expectations of home.
Here are 3 reasons why I think traveling is important – especially for crossdressers and transgender women:
1. Traveling gives you an opportunity to reinvent yourself
Nobody knows you and nobody will ever see you again, so you can literally be whoever you want to be.
2. Traveling is the ultimate rut buster
Does life feel like the same old, same old? Traveling exposes you to new experiences and gives you a fresh perspective on life. (And who can’t use that?)
3. Traveling teaches you to go with the flow
Most trips (like your own femme journey) are full of unexpected surprises. Traveling teaching you to go with the flow – and enjoy the experience.
So, do you travel en femme?
I’d love to hear about your femme travel adventures (or travel dreams), so please share them with me in the comments section below!
