I got sucked into the rabbit hole that is Thai teen dramas. It began with the second season of the popular TV series, Hormones featuring a lesbian couple and from there it just got more gay. Called the Skins of Thailand, the envelope-pushing Hormones: The Series follows a group of students at the fictional Nadao Bangkok College and bears more than just a little resemblance to its UK predecessor in addressing subjects such as drug use, single parenthood, sex, bullying and sexual identity. And, as much as I loved the original Skins, I might like Hormones even more. Both series portray teen life in a very raw and open manner — the good, the bad and the ugly — aiming to be as authentic as they are shocking. But I often find UK television shows are more about the shock value than the content itself.

There are many types of Lesbians in Thailand. Thai's have a unique way of naming sexual orientations, in fact the thai language take a lot of the naming system from the english language, I can only assume that since Thai's didn't really start using english in their language till about years ago you can concede that before those times, being gay would be strictly taboo.
Thai Teen Drama “Hormones” Features Lesbian Couple, Is Better Than “Skins”
You'd be forgiven for thinking that a Thai Tom was the Thai equivalent of the Tom Boy; a girl who is a bit boyish — short hair, plays footy with the lads and doesn't shave her legs. In fact, it's all a little confusing…. A Thai Tom is generally considered more man than just a woman with boyish tendencies.
This film could be mistaken for a simple and harmless lesbian teen rom-com. In the West and in , we are lucky to have quite a few of those. The narrative takes place between their shared dorm room and the surrounding university and city. Amongst the students, they live in a bubble that refreshingly and nonchalantly accepts queerness: their friend Jane has an open, immediate and persistent crush on Kim; their friend group has a token gay best friend, Boy, who is gloriously camp and has a bowl cut.
