Beyond The Mango Juice has enjoyed a lot of success over the past three years or so with occasional posts about Thai ladyboys and my top ten all time most hit posts currently includes three articles about Thailand’s third gender who remain very much a part of the country’s modern-day culture.
Number ten in that exclusive list, The Lady Boys of Bangkok, is one of my personal favourites on Beyond The Mango Juice but my recent efforts to break any new class of post into my top ten have been futile at best. However, the ingredients of Thai ladyboys in Pattaya and Miss Tiffany’s Universe 2012 may just have a sniff of getting one stiletto heel seductively inside the door of my all time hit list.

Thai Ladyboys in Pattaya – Miss Tiffany’s Universe 2012
Next month, 30 of Thailand’s most beautiful ladyboys will be snatching their handbags and heading off to Pattaya for Miss Tiffany’s Universe 2012 which is being
fondled held at Tiffany’s Theatre on May 4.
The cream of Thailand’s transvestite and transgender world will be contesting the 15th running of the yearly beauty pageant and the winner will receive a diamond studded tiara, the keys for one year to a luxury Pattaya apartment and 120,000 Thai baht to stuff into their handbag. They will also have the honour of representing Thailand at this year’s Miss International Queen Pageant which is being hosted in the Kingdom later this year.
Question One: Do ladyboys stuff handbags, or pad and pack them?
Miss Tiffany’s Universe is a coveted beauty crown and a pageant which always attracts a sell-out crowd and if you wish to attend this year’s gala event then you’d best hurry because tickets sell quick. Ticket prices are 2500 baht for VIP/Deluxe and 1500 baht for all other seats. Tiffany’s Theatre is on Pattaya 2nd Road and has a seating capacity of around 1000.
Each year the showcase final is broadcast live on Thai TV and Miss Tiffany’s Universe 2011 attracted over 15 million goggle-box viewers, once more proving the popularity of the show and the fascination and quizzical allure Thai ladyboys hold among Thai people. Channel 7 will once again relay this year’s show live to homes across Thailand.
Question Two: Do you view ladyboys on a goggle-box, or gobble-box?
The theme to this year’s Miss Tiffany’s Universe contest is “Freedom Avant-garde” (freedom to new concepts of modernism), and its contestants will arrive in Pattaya from all walks of life on April 29 to be pampered and powdered at a five-day beauty camp leading up to the grand final. Two days before the final all 30 ladyboys will line up in bikinis to contest Miss Unlimited Sexy 2012 at Central Festival Pattaya Beach.
Question Three: Do ladyboys stay at beauty camps, or beauty camp camps?
Tickets for Miss Tiffany’s Universe 2012 can be purchased online at Thai Ticket Major.
