MUXES

Great stories should be shared, especially when they are untold narratives with a powerful and meaningful message.

This artistic short film by Ivan Olita, describes "Mexico’s southern state of Oaxaca, indigenous communities accept a third category of gender besides just male and female. Known as “muxes,” these people combine elements of both genders and fill a unique role within the community. Local acceptance of this mixed-gender is rooted in ancient culture and can be traced back to the cross-dressing priests and hermaphrodite gods of Aztec and Maya civilizations.".
