Synopsis

Located in the south-eastern part of Antioquia, in the heart of the Colombian coffee zone, is the Karmata Rúa Indigenous Reservation, where the Emberá Chamí community live.

Marcela, Roxana, Gina, Alexa, Jaima and Pamela, indigenous trans-women, live there together. They are called: “WERAPARA” which in Emberá means: “girls, women, gay”.

They tell us about their life in the mountains, their daily tasks and their discoveries as trans-women, including the fusion of crafts and the world of fashion.
