In this July 22, 2012 photo, Linda Elizabeth Tylor Martinez, 22, is lit up by lights as she dances after performing at the Quinceanera birthday party of her friend Clancy Azuzena Monroy at a neighborhood dance hall in Guatemala City. Born a man, Tylor is a transgender woman who moves between two distinct worlds: one male, one female. Tylor is a man as a teacher and a woman as a prostitute. "In the beginning it (prostitution) was out of necessity because I was still getting my teacher's license,” she said. “But now, it's also because it's the only place that I can really be a woman."
