Ladyboys, lesbians and gays to get their own prisons

It’s like a script for an adult flick…

LGBT prisoners in Thailand’s jails are to be given their own correctional facility.

The heady mix of lesbians, ladyboys and gay men will be housed together in order to avoid bullying from male inmates.

Under the new policy, LGBT inmates will be locked up together at the Min Buri Prison, according to the Bangkok Post.

Kobkiat Kasiwiwat, the deputy permanent secretary for justice, said that if the pilot scheme was successful it could be rolled out nationally.

There are 4,448 LGBT prisoners in Thailand, including 2,258 females, 2,156 males and 34 transgender people.

A prison full of LGBT inmates? It might be more a case of jumping from the frying pan into the fire for some…
