Obese young men and ‘ladyboys’ dodge Thai military draft on conscription day

The law requires anyone who was born male to present themselves at recruitment centres after they turn 21

THAI "ladyboys" line up with hundreds of young men for a big weigh-in to decide who will be called up for military service. 

 

Transgender women who have completed surgical transition are exempt from conscription into the Army, along with men who are medically unfit. But the law requires anyone who was born male to present themselves at recruitment centres after they turn 21 to take part in a call-up lottery.

 

It has become an annual tradition as some self-styled ladyboys put on glamorous dresses and makeup to celebrate their femininity as they line up with other would-be conscripts.

 

With medical certificates in hand, they are allowed to keep their clothes on while the men remove their tops for a "fat check". The bizarre scenes are a ritual every April as Thai men over 21 must either choose to serve six months in the Army or enter a conscription lottery.
