G R A C I E L A   I T U R B I D E : HE/SHE/THEY

Graciela Iturbide’s photographs delve into the self-expressive life of Magnolia, who identified as Muxe, Zapoteca for homosexual and genderqueer. Magnolia’s confident portraits show her candid feminine nature in Juchitán, the “queer paradise.” Here, her feminine identity subverts gender expectations, thus revealing the beauty and freedom of playing one’s own chosen role.
