A rare genetic disorder means girls in Salinas in the Dominican Republic turn into boys at 12-years-old.

Around one in 90 children in Salinas are “Guevedoces” (sometimes called “Machihembras,” meaning “first a woman then a man”).

When these children are born they look like girls, with no testes and what appears to be a vagina, and it’s only when they near puberty that the penis grows and testicles descend. These children are simply referred to as the guevedoces, which literally translates to “penis at 12.”
