Mujercitos, or “effeminate men”, were a favourite topic of Mexican pulp magazine ¡Alarma!, alongside lurid photos of sexy women, murder victims and traffic accidents. This book, published by Editorial RM, recontextualises these photographs, making them the subject of a serious study of sexual and gender identity.
