About the Book
(You must purchase the book or an ebook to see all of the images.)
Thailand is the land where the girls are beautiful, and the boys are even more gorgeous, because they work hard at being more beautiful.
These images were taken inside the katoey clubs inside Nana Entertainment Plaza in Bangkok, Thailand in 2005-2007.
This book has 120 pages of photographs.
These are portraits not of Thai ladies, but of Thai Ladyboys,
the Katoeys of Nana Plaza.
