The Miss International Queen contest - a staple of the transvestite pageant scene - was due to be held in October in the kingdom's beach resort of Pattaya, but organisers postponed it for a month due to the political unrest. On Thursday, they said they would postpone it indefinitely because some contestants had been reluctant to travel to Thailand. Despite the trouble free and safe environment within Thailand, several Europeans and Asian countries have advised their citizens not to travel to Thailand through travel warnings, which has jeopardized the participation of some contestants. Two people were killed and nearly injured in violent clashes between protesters and police outside parliament in the capital Bangkok earlier this month. The annual contest draws transvestites from all over the world to compete for a cash prize of 10, dollars, but more importantly fame and acceptance. Known in Thailand as "kathoey," or the third gender, Thai transsexuals have slowly been leaving cabarets for mainstream success in music and other endeavours, helped in part by the popularity of beauty contests.
