In this July 22, 2012 photo, Linda Elizabeth Tylor Martinez, 22, shaves as she prepares for the birthday party of a friend turning 15, who hired Martinez to do her hair and to perform a dance during the party, in the El Milagro neighborhood of 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."
