Thailand’s most beautiful transgender actress, Poyd Treechada, is engaged to her wealthy businessman beau. The 36-year-old actress, who is better known by her nickname Poyd, announced the news on her Instagram last week, sharing a picture with her fiancé. The couple has known each other for over 20 years and attended the same school.
Phakwa Hongyok, also known as Oak, comes from a wealthy family and is involved in the hospitality industry. He runs Baan Ar Jor, a heritage hotel and museum in Phuket that has its own Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant. Poyd and Oak are frequently featured on the business’ Instagram account and went public with their relationship last year. The couple is set to tie the knot in March of this year.
Poyd had gender-affirming surgery when she was 17 and has been active in the entertainment industry since she was 19. She was named Thailand’s Most Beautiful Transgender after winning two beauty pageants, Miss Tiffany’s 2004 and Miss International Queen 2004. The actress has appeared in several films, including The White Storm and From Vegas to Macau II.
Many celebrities have left comments congratulating Poyd on her engagement, including Hong Kong singer-actresses Fiona Sit, and Toby Leung, and Thai actress Baifern Pimchanok. The upcoming wedding of Poyd and Oak is highly anticipated and will surely be a celebration of love, acceptance, and diversity.
