Today we came across some toilets for people who are neither boy or girl.
This sign for a restroom was spotted today at Khan Nam Seafood Restaurant in Hua Hin. As you can see, there are four different kinds of toilets.
You have men to the left and women to the right. Straight ahead you can see a toilet for the disabled but what is this purple door?
In Thailand they have the “third sex” which are often called lady boys. They are usually accepted by society. Even in schools where a couple of my primary 6 students are obviously in training to be lady boys one day.
The restaurant owner told us that many of her staff are lady boys. And as they didn’t feel comfortable using the men’s toilets nor welcome in the lady’s, she therefore built a toilet just for the purple people.
