Burnesha of Albania!

June 18, 2021 @ 11:00 am 11:07 am

In northern Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro, and in albanian ethnic groups in Bosnia, Dalmatian Croatia, Serbia and North Macedonia, another gender beyond the binary women-man exists. There are the Burnesha.
Burnesha are persons who are assigned as female at birth, but in a later stage of their life there has been a redefinition of their gender and they become “social men” (Young, 2000).
Lets’ meet them!
