The Wonderful Affair

Harika is a child whose Kurdish family was set refuge from Siirt to Manisa at the end of 1980’s.
With his own words, he is a transsexual feeling female spirit in his own body since early childhood. He lives in Izmir since 2000 and makes a living by prostutition.
Harika (literally translated as wonderful) poses with her self-confidence and courage for my multimedia project. It suggests the audience an unjudgemental stance for homophobia.
