Entry Description

Amongst the darkly lit rooms and cockroach infested floors of Thailand’s Cabarets was where I met Wannaros, a Ladyboy born in Hat Yai. Wannaros was the first born son, giving her a close bond with her Father. Her Father took an interest in boxing and hoped to share this interest with Wannaros. However, growing up Wannaros started to take hormes to become who she was on the inside. Her Father gave in to his suspicions and along with a source from a family friend, he began to beat on Wannaros at the age of 15 in the hopes that his little boy would return.
