In this June 15, 2012 photo, Linda Elizabeth Tylor Martinez, 22, looks in the mirror as she tries on the paper crown that she will use to compete in the upcoming the Miss Night Queen beauty contest 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."
