Harika is a child whose Kurdish family was set refuge from Siirt to Manisa at the end of 1980’s.

With his own words, he is a transsexual feeling a female spirit in his own body since early childhood. He lives in Izmir since 2000 and makes a living by prostitution.

Harika (literally translated as wonderful) poses with her self-confidence and courage for my multimedia project. It suggests to the audience an unjudgemental stance for homophobia.
