CALL # HQ76.2.M6 J8 2002
PUBLISHER: New York, NY : Filmmakers Library, 2002.
DESCRIPTION: 1 videocassette (64 min.) : sd., col. ; 1/2 in.
SUMMARY: "This is a fascinating portrait of Juchitan, a small Mexican city near the Guatemalan border. Here homosexuality is fully accepted; gays are simply a third gender. If a boy shows a predisposition to homosexuality his family will rejoice and be thankful for receiving what is considered a blessing. In Juchitan a man who wants to be a woman only has to dress like a woman to be considered and treated as a woman by the entire community. The film profiles three gay people: a teacher, a hairdresser and a shop owner."--Container.
