The Zapotec culture, through the “muxe” identity, includes homosexuality, gayness and same-sex marriage as a part of society: a muxe is a man who assumes affective, emotional and sexual roles that are culturally reserved for women. Avendaño portrays the Zapotec muxe through dance, and invites the audience to participate in the female rites of passage: the traditional wedding, the stewardship, the Healer-prayer, the mourning, and finally, the metamorphosis. Accessible to all language groups.
