Thammasat Allows Cross-Dressing Graduates

Thammasat University, a leading university of Thailand for the first time has given permission to five cross-dressing students to wear women’s gowns at their graduation ceremony this month.

The university allows undergraduate students to cross-dress in classes and was under increasing pressure to extend the flexible dress code to graduation gowns.

At least four cross-dressing students had asked for permission to dress as women at last year’s graduation ceremony but were denied.

The university OK’d the new dress code after receiving a go-ahead from the Royal Household Bureau, which handles questions of etiquette for all functions involving the Thai royal family. Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn is to preside over the university’s 30 August graduation ceremony.
