From the series Beyond Gender.

José Alberto, El Pato (The Duck) was born in 1980. He has been an actor and dancer since 1995 and went on to design clothes and make-up for his own performances and theater interpretations. He has also successfully participated in multiple national and international theater festivals as director, choreographer and producer. Since 2006, José Alberto, as his alter ego Alberta Canada, has mainly focused on the production of street performances through his theater company “Proyecto 21”, where he directs alternative fashion shows of clothes made of recycled garbage that deal with issues such as civil rights, global warming, cancer and HIV-AIDS prevention, as well as responsible consumerism. Proyecto 21 and Alberta are now a familiar presence in the Mexico City LGBT **** community events as well as in the protests against the insecurity and the militarization in Mexico.
