Thailand’s eldest, largest private university revealed new uniforms earlier this month for students with “alternative” genders.
Students at Bangkok University typically don white button shirts—boys wear loose slacks, and girls wear long skirts—but as soon as next term, “ladyboys” will be permitted to sport skirts and slim trousers, and “tomboys” will be able to opt for neck ties and baggy slacks.
Most undergraduate students in Thailand are required to dress according to school-sanctioned guidelines, but Bangkok University is the first educational institute in the nation to offer preferred-gender options for pupils across the gender spectrum.
“We’re ready for our transgender students to come and learn,” said the school via its Facebook page. “Just dress in a neat fashion.”
