Roberto Tondopó

The Chuntá are men who dressed as women dance during the celebration of San Sebastián in his honor of him (Chiapa de Corzo, Chis., México).

TRÁNSITO, based on altarpieces as a moving ex-votum links his father's death with his transformation as Chuntá, allowing him to enter into the hybrid and border identities to which he belong, gradually liberated from the joyous nonchalance of socially silenced minorities, transforming tradition in a celebration of cultural diversity and sexual dissidence, to conceive a configuration of the alternative subjectivity of LGBTIQ+ individuals, in a recent spiritual chapter on this holiday with processes of resistance to a state prone to authoritarian drift.
