Lady Gaga meets Thai 'lady boys'
Diving in to the city's nightlife, the pop diva and an entourage from her "Born This Way Ball" visited the well-known Calypso Cabaret featuring transvestites.
Lady Gaga was "moving to the rhythm" and "shouting and screaming" at Wednesday night's show, manager Nipon Boonmasuwan told Friday's Thairath newspaper. Transvestites and transsexuals are known in Thailand as lady boys.
"A million people have to pay to see a Gaga concert, but Gaga paid to see our show!" Nipon said.
Born This Way, the title track of her latest album, has become a gay anthem and includes the refrain, "Don't be a drag, just be a queen."
