joan alvado
Feb 29, 2020
I am very pleased to participate in the collective exhibition "Invisibles del Gènere", organized by Territories Libres with different works on gender and sexual identity. I participate with the work, "Esmeray," a story of positive overcoming from one of the first known profiles of Kurdish transsexuals in Turkey.

Esmeray is in display together with works of Wayra Ficapal and José Navarrete.
The exhibition can be still be visited in the gallery of the Open Society Foundation in Barcelona. (c / Sant Eusebi, 29)
