Music plays, drinks are served and the last boundaries are suspended: those between gender; gay, straight and bi; reality and fiction. Roshell and Lili run a small transformist club in Mexico City, where men of all ages and backgrounds come to watch, cruise or learn how to dress in drag.

Our take

If there’s a word that encapsulates Donoso’s approach to the transgender community of Casa Roshell, that is “empathy.” Echoing the utopic, non-judgemental atmosphere of the idiosyncratic club, her camera allows people to be who they want to be. A dreamy celebration of identity, an oasis of freedom.
