Androgynous Asian Stars



With a rising trend in androgyny (a combination of feminine and masculine characteristics) in the West, we have new role models such as Andrej Pejic, Agyness Deyn and Tilda Swinton. This trend doesn’t seem to have caught on in Asia though, and most females are still expected to behave in stereotypically feminine ways. However of late, some Asian girls are increasingly transcending gender norms. From K-pop stars to models to actresses, some prominent females in Asia are kickstarting the trend in androgyny.

Lalana Kongtoranin, Thailand

Back in 2006, Lalana Kongtoranin was a gracious Miss Thailand who, while not crowned to represent the Land of Smiles in an international beauty pageant, had important responsibilities such as being the welcoming face of the country to foreign dignitaries and VIP visitors coming from different nations around the world. She was also affiliated with the promotion of the Bangkok International Film Festival.

But when she actively pursued her medical studies and eventually became a full-pledged Doctor at the Ramathibodee Hospital, she also decided it would be the right time to come out in the open with her sexuality.
