The Sisters Foundation assisted transgender women applying to be excused from military service at the annual draft.

Foundation President Thitinan Nukpor said Sisters created a manual for transgenders explaining all the laws and regulations covering Thailand’s mandatory military service requirement for males age 20.

In order to be excused from service, the women who were born men must provide certificates of physical and mental examinations that confirm their gender choice was legitimate.

The book also lists the other documents they need to bring to the draft, which was held in Banglamung this year on April 7-8.

Potential conscripts were told to dress properly and act respectful.
