Congratulations to her. I hope she (and others) use her power to influence change for the better wrt LGBT rights.
“Thailand: Trans woman becomes the first to win elections to public office”
I’m sure we’ll see that odious cow (aka Lumi Bast) come in and give us all a lesson on why we should not to support “immoral” and “wrong” people like Yonlada Suanyos.
Well, f..k Lumi Bast and people like her, I give me congrats to Ms Suanyos! What an achievement for her.
Dotn know your cow, but we have our own. Maggie Gallagher – she is a cow in size, and she supports traditional marriage by having not one but 2 illegitimate kids
She’s got diabetes as well. Anyone got a big donut made out of mostly sugar?
Speed up this catholic (female dog)s trip to hell.
Ohyes – forgot – when the truth about her kiddies was widely disseminated she almost disappeared.
probably just writing more bigotry and nonsense for the Pope who unexcommunciated a holocaust denier
She defeated 2 “other” male candidates?
Yea that says a lot >.>
She isnt male. Even in the lgbT society theres still a lot of segregation.
I first saw her on skys ” ladyboys ” show. A horris name to be honest. They document what it like for them and how they cope and tr social acceptance they receive. She runs or ran a charity to help fund surgery for trans women who otherwise would be stuck as the wrong gender as they could never afford reassignment. I think her organisation was able to help 3 a year.
She was very intelliget and well educated. I can see why she would be very popular politician. What the show clearly showed and pretty unbiased for a murdoch program is the general acceptance they rightly receive. Opposition is very low. Some are not comfortable but they dont like to make an issue and draw attention.
I wish her all the best in her new role in public office.
Yeah, I spotted that too. Very careless description by PN, but I think it was supposed to mean “two other candidates, both of which were male”
Sorry about the repetition, Will – your comment didn’t come up for me until after I posted mine!
Not at all! Just means more of us spotted it :)
I think this was just poor sub-editing – I think Edmund meant:
She defeated two other candidates, both male.
But it was very unfortunate and should be corrected asap..
Well done to her! :) But blimey, for someone who’s 30 she’s done a hell of a lot with her life!
Good News she won a seat :D. Yolanda was in a documentary a few weeks ago on sky living about the transgender community in Thailand. She seemed to really care about fighting for LGBT rights. I think Yolanda will do a good job. Well done :D
She appeared in Sky Living’s Ladyboys documentary. She is really cool and has done a lot for her community.
Wow, she is such a doll !! I would love to look like her !
Such a beautiful, smart and talented woman. Congratulations to her.
Bravo that lady! A wonderfully deserving woman for such a historic achievement.
More power to her elbow!
And despite this, IMHO trans people about 10 years behind gay people re equality.
At least in my country, the United states of AmeriKKKa
just in case the KKK – Ku Klux Klan gave America segregation and now hates gay people also
they are evangelical xtians for the most part – evangelizing hatred in the name of God.
Maybe we should subject these people to full Leviticus treatment………
that would solve our problem with them but good
