Thai PC Air recruits ladyboys as stewardesses


A newly launched Thai airline has hired six transsexuals to their flight attendant crew in what they felt is an effort to promote an equal opportunity agenda for what they consider the “third sex”.

Thanyarat Jiraphatpakorn, winner of the 2007 Miss Tiffany transsexual beauty pageant, was among the successful candidates to land a job on PC Air, reports the Star Online.

According to Sin Chew Daily, they will be given a ‘third sex’ name tag while on duty to avoid immigration issues.

Thailand has one of the largest transsexual populations in the world.
