Trans Thailand

 Some Girls, by Aaron Joel Santos, straddles the line between fantasy and reality and aims to explore the lifestyles of the transgendered community in Thailand, from the daily lives of young women in Bangkok to the sex workers and cabaret stars of Pattaya and beyond.

In the real world, some girls are born boys. The dream is to escape or transcend that body. To flourish and transform into a beautiful and more feminine being. Oftentimes these worlds merge in wonderful and weird ways. Life becomes a stage where the myths and stereotypes of gender are all played out.

Some Girls is a work in progress and as such is constantly growing and transforming, much like the subjects it depicts.
