Ladyboy
The Goal: $5,000
The Deadline:
Cool Perk for Contributions: Those who pledge $25 receive a signed 4"x6" photo from the project.

Photographer Ekkarat Punyatara is looking to dispel myths and fantasies of what it means to be a "ladyboy" in Thailand.

The donations will help Punyatara travel from New York to Thailand to capture more images of ladyboys and beauty contests, a developing phenomenon in which ladyboys in the northern Thailand try to participate in as many beauty contests as they can with hopes that they'll win a monetary award or plastic surgery.

Punyatara's goal is to have his photos exhibited in shows and in publications.

Watch the pitch below, and visit their Kickstarter page here.
