Thailand’s LGBT spectrum contains a group commonly referred to as “Tomboys” or “Toms,” an identity that is unique to Thailand’s queer community.

According to Dee Lesla, founder of a popular Tomdating site, there are several traits that one must embody in order to be a “true Tom.”

“You have to have a flat chest. Secondly, you have to be able to protect your girl.”

“Thirdly, you have to act like a ‘sugar daddy’ and pay for everything for your girl.”
