Ladyboys of Bangkok

Edinburgh Fringe


The Lady Boys of Bangkok is a cabaret show featuring sixteen kathoey from Thailand. The show includes elements of dance, cabaret, and comedy.


Kathoey or katoey (Thai: กะเทย, IPA: [kaʔtʰɤːj]) is a male-to-female transgender person or an effeminate gay male in Thailand.


The Lady Boys perform as part of the Edinburgh Festival and Brighton Festival Fringe, and they regularly tour the United Kingdom both before and after their August run in Scotland. The show in Edinburgh takes place in The Sabai Pavilion, a large purpose-built tent.
