This book addresses the Muxes in an exploration of the cultural, sexual and personal identity of the author and of this community in Oaxaca, México. Since pre-Hispanic times the Zapotec culture accepts homosexuality, gives it an active role and an open position within society, much more relevant than anywhere else in Latin America. The Muxes are organically integrated into the social and economic net of the community, commenting on the duality as a deeply rooted feature in this country. Nelson Morales has developed this project for almost eight years, in which he has photographed in his own community on the Isthmus of Oaxaca. One of five-hundred copies, with only three holdings listed on WorldCat's database.
