Photo above is taken from Fa’afafine: In the Manner of a Woman by Shigeyuki Kihara
"Drawing on archival nineteenth-century South Seas postcards, Kihara poses as both a Samoan man and woman, and in three panels of a dusky Polynesian maiden reveals her dual sexuality to challenge the binary model of Western sexuality that labels third sex/gender categories deviant (Pictured above).
Shigeyuki Kihara is a visual and performance artist based in Auckland, New Zealand. The recipient in 2003 of Creative New Zealand Art Council’s Emerging Paciﬁc Island Artist Award, her cutting-edge work challenges cultural stereotypes and dominant norms of sexuality and gender. Crossing borders is integral to Kihara’s life. She grew up with a Japanese father and Samoan mother, and in adolescence began occupying the Samoan space (vä) of a Fa’afaﬁne—a liminal gender category best translated as a male who identiﬁes as a woman.”http://muse.jhu.edu/

The Woodford Folk Festival is an annual music festival held near the semi-rural town of Woodford, 72 km north of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It is one of the biggest annual cultural events of its type in Australia.
The festival takes place over six days and nights from 27 December to 1 January each year. It features a wide range of performance styles, musical genres and nationalities, in many simultaneous venues across the site. About 130,000 patrons attend annually, camping on-site—some just overnight—many for the full festival experience. The final evening of the Woodford festival culminates in a spectacular New Year's Day closing ceremony, Fire Event.
