Muxes: Transvestites in a land of machos

Text Caroline Chapeaux & Photo Eliane Beeson – Mexico, Juchitan – According to myth, God entrusted San Vicente with a difficult task: he had to carry a bag filled with homosexuals, and had to spread them all over the world. Upon arriving in Juchitàn de Zaragoza, San Vicente’s bag accidentally split open. That’s why Juchitàn is now called “the land of Muxes” (homosexuals in the indigenous Zapotec language).
