Girlboys are women who, during prison detention, assume a male identity. They have “wives” who tidy up, do the laundry and wash the dishes. Girlboys protect them, fulfill their emotional need and offer them sexual pleasure. They have men nicknames, cut their hair short and wear masculine clothes, clench their fists and demand respect. Some of them have children at home and they do this only while they are imprisoned. Others continue their relationships after they are released. Most of them are old offenders. Almost all have suffered sexual abuse. All pictures were shot in 2011 at Tîrgșor Women Penitentiary, România.
