A video of a hotel in Pattaya, Chonburi province refusing to check in a transgender guest has been posted online. This may surprise Thailand goers as Pattaya is famous for its ladyboys.
It is, of course, fascinating that in 2021 there are still people who choose to dwell in the past.
In this modern world, everyone should be in full agreement with their own body and mind, meaning they should be able to express themselves however they want without being judged. The transgender-to-be said she wouldn’t want similar cases to continue.
The story was shared by the famous Thai Facebook page called “If you want to be famous, go back here” in Thai.
The post stated: “Does the sexist phenomenon still exist? The hotel does not accept LGBT persons as guests. Hotel employees asked transgender to tell the foreign guests that they were transgender. This caused public embarrassment as there were other guests who witnessed the incident and perceived it as a form of discrimination.”
In the tik tok video, there are 2 individuals arguing with the captions that read, “A hotel in Pattaya doesn’t allow ladyboys”.
The transgender later stated that the video was put online by the sister. Netizens had many opinions, and they weren’t shy about expressing them. Not long after the hotel made a statement online that there are no rules for accepting transgender people as guests. The hotel also wanted to contact the transgender person to apologize. However, the victim and the sister do not want an apology from the hotel, because that is mustard after the meal, they experience.
The Rainbow Sky Association of Thailand stated that such incidents should not happen. The victim wants representatives of the association to help solve the problem. They don’t want incidents like this to happen again to other LGBT people because there should be more equality in this world.
