Siamese Dreams by Iv C. Ching

In 2014, the Thai military junta takes power by force and forces the First Minister to resign. This military putsch comes after popular opposing movements while the elections are being prepared.

Aum Neko is a young transgender woman studying in Bangkok. While Thai society undergoes an identity crisis, her own desire to realize herself as a woman doubles as political activism in favor of democracy and against all forms of discrimination. Her discourse, original and provocative, quickly garners a considerable audience, breaking down social walls and destabilizing traditional elites. Her dream becomes a threat to the established order which hunts her ferociously.
