School’s transvestite toilets result in more applications to study

School’s transvestite toilets result in more applications to study

Saksit Meesubkwang
Following installation of transvestite toilet facilities at schools elsewhere in Thailand, several Chiang Mai educational facilities have decided to follow the trend and introduce them as well.

One of Sritana Commerce and Technology School’s specially installed transvestite toilet facilities.

At the private Sritana Commerce and Technology School in Chiang Mai on Huay Kaew Road, 2 sets of toilet facilities have been provided to transvestite students, located in the same zone as the women’s toilets. .The idea was initiated by Prapat Pothipan, the deputy manager of student activities, and seems to have been much appreciated. The school has a large number of students, and is known to be tolerant of varying dress codes amongst its transvestite pupils. It would seem that since the new facilities, referred to after a vote by students as the “Rainbow Bathrooms” were set up, scholastic results improved. As a result, another similar may be installed.
The school has received another benefit from its understanding attitude in that an increased number of parents of transvestite children are applying to have them educated at the school. New applications will be considered for the beginning of the next term or educational year.
