In this June 15, 2012 photo, Linda Elizabeth Tylor Martinez, 22, center, performs as she competes in the Miss Night Queen beauty contest in Guatemala City. Born a man, Tylor is a transgender woman who moves between two distinct worlds: one male, one female. She 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."
