Warrior by Olaya
Warrior is a tribute to all men and women that have being born in the wrong body. Being transgender is only a matter of gender identity, does not imply any form of sexual orientation, and it should´t be mistaken with transvestism. Day by day, they have to fight not only to their own shell, but with society.
That´s why I wanted to depict them in the form of some kind of greek goddess warrior, something strong, but with a wise and majestic aura. And she´s still have a penis, becouse a big percentage of transsexual people doesn´t choose to do the sex reassignment surgery, they don´t want to loose all the feeling in their genitalia. But that doesn´t mean that they shouldn´t be referred and treated as the gender they have. The gender is determined by the brain, not the genitalia.
