ME GOODY invites the LGBTQ+ community to explore a new perspective of gender with Seek -/+ Found: Tale of the City
By Panha Eay(Raki)
When we talk about travelling to Bangkok, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Shopping malls? Food ? Or perhaps Art ? For us it’s the story that this city has to tell. The beauty of Bangkok City is a blend of experience with history, food, architecture, and, more importantly, the diversity of people.
Thailand is globally recognized for being socially acceptable of LGBTQ+ community and when it comes to the diversity of this country, the story of gender-neutral individuals is worth telling. ME GOODY, as an ally, present you Jesse Kim, our gender-neutral protagonist.
“What happened to Jesse?”, the question to answer in Tale of the city
Tale of the City is a fairy tale set in the fictitious Empire of Chakawan that was once a glorious Empire. After the death of the Emperor who left no heir, Augustin and Kim families couldn’t agree on the future of the Empire.
As a solution to an heirless throne, the marriage of Jesse Kim(they/them) and Kiaan Augustin must happen so that they can rule Chakawan together. However, Jesse refuses to live their life the way it was arranged so they left on a journey of self-discovery. The mission is to find out “ What happened to Jesse?”
Tale of the City is our exclusive session. By picking up one of the characters in the story, you will embark on a uniquely creative travel experience around Bangkok. Jesse, as a gender-neutral character, is representing the reality of many LGBTQ+ folks who are still discovering who they really are. Jesse is a courageous person who is willing to let go of their life as a noble and choose to find their truth. Do they resonate with you?
ME GOODY is a welcoming platform that provides a safe space for young individuals to embrace and express their true selves, including those with diverse gender identities. ME GOODY invites the LGBTQ+ community to explore the character of Jesse Kim in their journey of self-discovery and empowerment regardless of their gender identity.
Jesse Kim is a symbol of courage and self-realisation. This character was carefully developed to reflect the reality of LGBTQ+ individuals who have yet to reveal themselves to the outside world. Jesse’s story serves as a powerful reminder to embrace our true identity and inspires us to find the strength within ourselves to break free from society’s expectations. Together, let’s cherish the beauty of diversity with ME GOODY.
