“Mujercitos” historicizes photographs of men dressed as women in the Mexican newspaper Alarma! (red page for the bloody content).
This research examines how these photographs participate in the larger national imaginary of non-normative sexualities in Mexico through an analysis of how and which specific modes of being identified are at play. The images were published in the leading nota roja newspaper in the span of three decades (1963 to 1986).
