In Europe and America, the tradition of men dressed as women for theatre roles dates back five hundred years when it was not permitted for a respectable woman to be seen on the stage. During World War II, many of the great English pantomimes featured men dressed as women as there were no women on the frontlines where the shows took place.
However, in Thailand, due to the considerable tolerance of the culture, the theatrical performances of men dressed as women has always been accepted and a great number of males who feel more natural as females, find a career as cabaret performers.
