Pinay-Thai transgender brawl injures Filipino bystander


The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said that a Thai transgender group involved in a fight with a Filipino group in Bangkok “attacked” and seriously injured a Filipino bystander.

In a report on March 5, the Philippine Embassy in Thailand said four Filipinos were hurt from the clash that broke out in Soi Sukhumvit 11 on Monday night.

DFA Undersecretary Eduardo Jose de Vega said the first three overseas Filipinos (OF), identified as “John, Christian, and Andre,” sustained scratches and were allegedly the ones involved in the argument.

“The fourth OF, Jaymar or Ivy, who sustained the most injuries on the face and head, was not acquainted with the 3. He was a guest at the same hotel as the 3, a bystander at the scene of the brawl when he was ‘attacked’ by the mob of Thai ladyboys,” he added.

The four were brought to the station for questioning, a hearing is also set for March 8, he added.

De Vega stated the claims would be examined in light of CCTV footage. More Thai trans women gathered at the location to retaliate to the attack when the brawl became viral on social media.

According to local sources citing the transgender group from Thailand, the Filipino equivalents started stomping on the Thai group and shouted insults at them as they were walking past. The Filipinos then attempted to shoo the Thai group away.

When the police were escorting two Filipinos out of the hotel at 10 p.m., numerous Thai LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) members started striking them. This is when the brawl started.

While a second Filipino walked downstairs to buy food, there were allegedly more fights. The second incident occurred while law enforcement escorted the remaining group members, but the Thais outnumbered them.
