Consider - Thailand

The teenager Tay is a ladyboy, or kathoey, as members of this relatively well-tolerated transgender group are called in Thailand. They usually demonstrate a traditional female role and are sometimes called the Third Sex. Interviews with sympathetic fellow students and a teacher who is also a kathoey show the level of acceptance of Tay's orientation at his Christian school Saint Joseph Mueang-Ake. But as his tearful mother explains, a single intolerant and violent teacher once drove him to attempt suicide.
