Albanian Sworn Virgins

This is more a photo essay, but it’s a good one, with pretty great photography of these women who live as men. Burrnesha is the term in Albanian.

  1. I have seen this and it is “grassroots spectacular” idf that makes sense. I actually have a friend JJ who lives like this in Arkansas. A natal female, he transitioned about four years ago, and like me was older when he did it – both of us in our 60s – he to male, me to female of course. He fits in with the community now, and loves his life.
