Venus Flytrap is 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,[1] and their first album, Visa for Love, was released a month later.[2] Also in December 2006, they performed two songs with Thai superstar Tata Young at one of her concerts Bangkok.

Venus Flytrap is the first all-kathoey music group in Thailand with a recording contract, and the second in the world, following South Korean group Lady.[2]
