Chris travels to the Thai cities of Bangkok and Chiang Mai to chat with sex workers and others with insights into Thailand's sex industry, including members of EMPOWER – the country's oldest and largest sex worker organization. The EMPOWER Foundation's 2016 community research project entitled Moving Toward Decent Sex Work is available in full here and is definitely worth reading. We also recommend The Third Gender a documentary by Vivienne Chen about the Thai trans community, which is available for free on Youtube. For more on this community check out the Wikipedia page for Kathoey. Finally, make sure to pay a visit to Can Do Bar if you ever find yourself in Chiang Mai.
