Nicola Ókin Frioli’s award winning series of photographs documenting “Muxes”, Mexico’s transgendered community that is celebrated as a symbol of good luck for their family.

Muxes, of the “pueblo oaxacaqueno de Juchitan”, are more than 3000 homosexuals who enjoy respect and admiration in all the country.

It is considered lucky for a homosexual to be born in Juchitan, where the Muxes walk proudly in the streets, dressed as women with huipiles and enaguas, typical dress of the Tehuantepec Isthmus.
