Doi Boy

These Shan boys’ prostitutions to men. The new generations of people from Zomia who live in foreign communities as aliens in Chiangmai, Thailand. They are invisible for the government, invisible from social status, invisible from gender. They are not bothered by anything and are happier to do this work than to go back home to fight for the army.
