Evolution of Thailand’s most famous ladyboy

We first saw Poyd Treechada when she was crowned Miss Tiffany 2004, and her beauty captivated the nation at the time. There had never been a transgender woman as fair as her, and 10 years later she remains one of the most idolized figures in the entertainment industry.

Before the kingdom’s most beautiful transgender woman, Poyd was a little boy in Phuket who knew at 4 she was born to be a woman. She put on a friend’s skirt and was beaten by her mother for it.

She was forced to play football and given typical toys for little boys like robots, but in her closet, Poyd kept a Barbie doll, and it wasn’t long until she came out to her family.

Poyd decided to go through a sex-change operation at 18 and traveled to Pattaya to compete for Miss Tiffany 2004. She won. She then represented Thailand at the Miss International Contest in the same year and won that, creating a frenzy in the kingdom as Poyd was yet the most feminine and beautiful transgender woman they’d ever seen.
