Medellin’s famous transvestite debuts on the silver screen – Adriaan Alsema

A group of Canadian filmmakers are releasing a movie on La Dany, the Medellin transvestite street artist that makes Andy Warhol look like a boring heterosexual. The film will see its first screening in Colombia’s second largest city on Tuesday.

The film shows the daily life of downtown Medellin through the eyes of the city’s most famous street artist, La Dany. This transgendered whirlwind is well-known in every neighborhood of Medellin because of her extravagant, controversial and highly energetic act.
