Toms: The Complex World of Female Love in Thailand
Thailand’s ‘toms’ (as in tomboys) inhabit a unique place on the gender spectrum. They are girls who dress and act in a masculine way, typically sporting a uniform look of short hair, t-shirts and jeans. But toms don’t consider themselves trans or even lesbians, despite the fact that they date women (often girly ‘dees’ or other toms).
In this short documentary, we explore the world of tom culture and Thailand’s complex girl-girl relationships.
