El Mejunje’s first “Miss Trans Cuba”, Juanita today dares to leave the theatre in her evening gown. She admits that most transsexuals, fearing harassment, prefer to wear their feminine attire only at night and in discreet locations. Even though the situation is improving, transsexuals are still too often the victims of aggression by the police and by part of the population.

Première "Miss Trans Cuba" d’El Mejunje, Juanita ose aujourd’hui sortir du théâtre en gardant sur elle sa robe de soirée. Cependant, elle explique que la plupart des transsexuels préfèrent encore porter leurs vêtements de femme uniquement la nuit et dans des lieux discrets pour ne pas se faire importuner. En effet, même si la situation s’améliore, les transsexuels sont encore victimes d’agressions de la part de la police et d’une partie de la population.

Certain artists, such as Juan and Lorenzo of the dancing quartet “The Dream Boys”, portray feminine characters without having started hormonal treatments. They consider themselves to be primarily “transformists”, though some of them will one day become transsexuals.

Juan et Lorenzo, membres du quatuor de danseurs homosexuels The Dream Boys, sont considérés comme des transformistes, étant donné qu’ils interprètent des rôles féminins. Originaires de La Havane, ils se rendent tous les hivers à Santa Clara pour donner des représentations. Contrairement aux artistes transsexuels, ils ne souhaitent pas changer de sexe et n’arborent pas de vêtements féminins en dehors de la scène.

Ciertos artistas, como Juan y Lorenzo del cuarteto de bailarines gays “The Dream Boys”, interpretan personajes femeninos pero todavía no toman tratamiento hormonal. Se consideran ante todo como transformistas, antes de convertirse, para ciertos, en transexuales.
