A creative soul, actor, and moderator from the famous TV program Toey Tiew Thai, Niti Chaichitathorn or “Pompam” has become a highly talked about icon. His comedic TV program creatively generates content that perfectly combines gender diversity with traveling. Under the spotlight, Pompam always successfully connects with his audience by making them practically laugh to death! However, his experiences with discrimination in real life is far from entertaining. Pompam has been challenged by social bias, discrimination, and judgement towards his own identifcation as a homosexual man. Unfortunately, some carry the ideology of judging another’s value based on external factors. Pompam is living proof that our authenthic value and selfhood comes from our inner self and our inner potential, not from our sexual orientation. Stereotypes andcommon perceptions like “all gay people must be funny” should no longer hold in modern society. We need to work together to break these perceptions and treat every individual with respect and kindness.
