An interesting story discusses how educators in Bankok, Thailand have introduced a “transvestite toilet” for transvestite high school students. Despite the conservative character of the country, the Thais have a great deal of tolerance and acceptance for transgender students, which makes up a significant number of students at the Kampang school.
The unisex restroom is designated by a human figure split in half — part man in blue and part woman in red with the words “Transvestite Toilet.” More than 200 of the school’s 2,600 students consider themselves transgender.
Thai colleges have also accommodates transgender students. A 1,500-student technical college in the northern province of Chiang Mai set up a “Pink Lotus Bathroom” for its 15 transvestite students in 2003.
