Brighton Fringe: Lady Boys of Bangkok

The boys are back in town, the Lady Boys of Bangkok that is!

Having been in Brighton for a few years now, I have seen the Lady Boys tent pitched up and heard the music blaring out each year, but I never ventured any further. This year however, I was invited to photograph the launch of 'Glamorous Amorous' and got a ticket to the gala show. Boy, what a show!

Now, having witnessed it, I appreciate what all the fuss is about. This all male team of 16 flamboyant performers, lip sync'ed and danced to a string of well-known and popular songs; YMCA, My Way, Gangnam Style and many more, whilst draped in lavish costumes covered in more sequins than Vegas. If you haven't seen The Lady Boys of Bangkok, it is a must-see, grab a ticket while it is still playing at Brighton Fringe.

Below is a selection of images from the first half's performance, if you want to see the even more impressive second half, you are just going to have to go to the show ;)
