Venus Flytrap was a Thai pop music group made up of five young
transgender women (commonly called kathoey in Thailand). The members
were selected from 200 applicants during an audition in 2005 by Sony
BMG Music Entertainment, which also promotes the group and provided it
with a recording contract.
Their first public performance occurred in November 2006, and their
first album, Visa for Love, was released a month later. Also in
December 2006, they performed two songs with Thai superstar Tata Young
at one of her concerts in Bangkok.
