Maybe some transexual women have never heard about Simone de Beauvoir, but they know exactly what she was talking about being a woman: the experience of female affirmation is felt on the skin.

The 6th Miss Curitiba Trans was more than a beauty contest, the event have a social and political importance for these women. Curitiba is the city that most kills Transsexuals, however, is the first place on searches for Trans Sex services. The event was a liberation and empowerment for this women, who apparently serve for sexual services but when they walk on the street they are mistreated.
