Transgender flight attendants take to the skiesAround the World, Top Highlights Thursday, January 12th, 2012
BANGKOK – Four transgender airline in-flight staff have taken part in new Thai carrier PC Air’s first flight from Bangkok to Surat Thani.
The four were hired last year as part of a larger hiring, which included 30 new employees. At the time, PC Air boss Peter Chan told the Daily Telegraph, “I think these people can have many careers – not just in the entertainment business – and many of them have a dream to be an air hostess. I just made their dream come true. Our society has changed. It’s evolution. I’m a pioneer and I’m sure there will be other organizations following my idea.”
Thailand is considered one of the more tolerant countries in the region when it comes to human sexuality, and transgender entertainers are quite common in popular entertainment, television shows and nightclub performances.
