Consider (พิจารณา) -Documentary

Director: Panu Saeng-Xuto Country: Thailand Length: 20min Language: Thai Subtitle: English Completed date: 2013

Tay is a teenage ladyboy, or “kathoey” which is a relatively well-tolerated transgender group in Thailand. These are males who take on traditional female roles, and some describe them as the “third gender”. In the film, he was asked “Do you think you made a mistake by appearing in the media?” Tay answered, “I kind of do.” “If you could go back in time, what would you have changed or fixed?” Tay replied, “I would not try to kill myself again.” Interviews with sympathetic fellow students and a teacher his is also a “kathoey” demonstrated the level of acceptance of Tay’s gender orientation at his Christian school, Saint Joseph Mueang-Ake. This becomes most triumphantly clear when Tay appeared at a school Christmas party in a beautiful red dress. But as his tearful mother explained, a single intolerant and violent teacher drove him to attempt suicide. Elsewhere in the film, we see Tay going about his daily life, traveling to and from school, and silently touching up his makeup in front of the mirror.
