César Enríquez: La Prietty Guoman

La Prietty Guoman

Mexico has one of the highest rates of hate killings of the LGBT community. I wanted to create a singular voice that could speak for all of the voices that have been silenced. The “Prietty Guoman” is not just one body. She is many bodies: trans, indigenous, poor, sex worker, artist, and all those who stand on the outside—unseen, unheard.
