Niity said: “I was totally surprised when the police told me they had my wallet as I didn’t even know I’d lost it. My first reaction was ‘wow’, if it was me in that position with no money I probably would have kept it. But he was homeless and had just a few coins in his pocket and still handed it in. That shows a good, honest person. Just the kind of staff we need."
Niity’s girlfriend, who posted a pictures on social media, told Thai media: "Woralop is such a good example that being kind really does pay off. When you’re kind to another, another is kind to you."
Woralop said: "I’m so grateful to be given this chance to turn my life around. Having a clean bed to sleep in makes me so happy now. I want to thank Niity and Tarika for the kindness they have both shown to me.”
Transfit is a gym in Bangkok, Thailand, that has an all trans men work crew, one of the few in the world.
Its owner, 27-year-old Jyb, is a transgender male model and fitness instructor who hopes to share his training knowledge with others.
‘I opened the gym because I wanted to help tomboys and trans men to have nice bodies,’ Jyb, whose full name is Phanyapad Maha-Udomporn, told Mashable.
In Thailand, ‘tomboys’ — more commonly known as ‘toms’ — are people who are assigned female at birth but dress up in a more masculine fashion and usually date women.
‘A tom is a woman who dresses like a guy, cuts her hair like a guy and goes out with girls,’ Jyb says.
Many toms bind their chests to give a flat appearance. Most also prefer the ‘he’ pronoun. However, only some toms identify as men while many don’t.
Jyb revealed to PRI that some trans men and butch women had ‘felt awkward being stared at’ in mixed gender gyms. That’s why he set up Transfit in 2015, which carries the slogan: ‘Not Only Men Gain Muscles.’
