Tunisia, Tunis. 02 December, 2016. A posed portrait of 29 year old, gender queer person Khookha. When Khookha's family discovered that he is an activist with Tunisian non-governmental women's rights and LGBTQI+ organization Mawjoudui - We Exist, his mother asked that he see a psychologist to "adjust my weird behaviour and heal me from abomination and mental disease." The Psychologist said he was adopting female traits to show signs of weakness, a claim he flatly rejects. "I don't agree with my psychologist, everyone should have the right to experiment femininity and masculinity and every possible way of gender expression despite of the biological sex they were assigned to at birth."
