A friend of mine posted this over at Buddhadharma the other day. It’s a great video clip of an interview with a Thai Buddhist monk who used to be a transvestite.
The interviewer is a little annoying at times. In his overly sensationalist, typical tabloid-in-your-face-a-current-affair journalistic style, he seems hell bound on getting a rise out of the guy.
But the young monk never looses his cool. Towards the end of the interview segment he lays the Buddha smack down on the show’s host:
“Can you cease it in your mind? A gay is a gay. Let it be. I am what I am.”
