A trans­gen­der Thai woman waits for her doc­u­ments dur­ing a com­pul­sory army draft held at a school in Klong Toey, a dock­side slum area in Bangkok, on 5 April. Al­though the mil­i­tary junta of­fers some leniency on manda­tory ser­vice for those who can show med­i­cal records of a sex change, ac­tivists say the prac­tice of call­ing in trans­gen­der women be­cause of their born gen­der should be scrapped.
