The Alternative Sexes of Thammasat Group posted a petition at Change.orglast month with the goal of gathering 2,500 signatures. As of Monday morning, it had 2,122.
The group said it wants Thammasat University to allow cross-dressing at commencements, as Chulalongkorn University does.
School authorities have rebuffed its direct requests, saying all students must wear the uniform appropriate to their birth gender.
The group points out that female transvestites would be forced to wear male uniforms even if their breasts are evident, as well as wigs in many cases.
