Sharing a feature from @Guardian: “In #Juchitán , Mexico, Muxes – children identified as male at birth, but who choose at a young age to be raised as female – are embraced as part of the community.
Being #Muxe is often confused with being #transgender , but it is an identity specific to the #Oaxaca region and the #indigenous#Zapoteca culture. Having a muxe person in the family has come to be seen as good luck and even a blessing. But life outside Juchitán is not always easy. For the documentary #Muxes , the director Shaul Schwarz reconnects with the characters and culture he photographed extensively from 2002-06.” • To watch, go to: https://www.theguardian.com/world/ng-interactive/2017/oct/27/muxes-documentary-the-mexican-town-where-gender-is-fluid
Atardecer en San Francisco Ozolotzepec, México.
A hike last spring brought me to this village in a huge valley. The people living here barely speak Spanish. They speak Zapoteca and are one of the kindest I met in Mexico. Since there is no hotel there, nor a possibility to camp, I was offered a room of a guy we met in the village.
Love Spell ✨🌶🍫
