Muxes - authentic intrepid seekers of danger

A lively and surprising portrait of a group of homosexuals, who defend their sexual diversity while preserving their identity as Zapotec Indians in the "queer paradise" of Juchitán, México. Muxes (pronounced 'mooshays') examines transgressive boundary-pushing within an indigenous culture that has historically embraced this "third gender".
