Thanks to Purita we learn that transvestites are a linguistic, political and legal community. His text, for example, teaches us a lexicon (“the painted mouths”, “la Guámana”, “el ca¬chero”, etc.) and a semantic structure (“el Ninoska”, “a gay travesti”, etc. ) that were used at the time, which allow us to glimpse a community in practice. The language, then, very far from the binary mandates of the RAE, accounts for a different way of life that perceives identity in a particular way.
