Trailer for upcoming documentary on the Vela Muxhe.

A Muxhe, historically speaking, is an indigenous Zapotec male that transgresses gender boundaries within the Zapotec culture of Juchitan, making them what some have considered a "third gender". In current day Mexico the definition of a Muxhe has become much broader and difficult to define, but that is the pivotal exploration point of this documentary.

The Vela Muxhe is a festivity that takes place in Juchitan every year to celebrate sexual diversity, have an all Muxhe catwalk, crown a new Muxhe queen, and have copious amounts of fun.
