Burrnesha men who were women
The man in the photo is actually a woman. In Albania is still alive the tradition – women turn into men, and there are thousands of them in Albania. Burrnesha men take men’s names, wear men’s clothes, work and act like men. So, if in a family there are no males left, a woman takes a vow of chastity and becomes the new patriarch, and a new protector of her family. They are called Burrnesha – The Sworn Virgins of Albania.

They fear vendetta, as the honor in Albania can be paid only with blood. Bloody Vendetta lasts for years, has been prepared thoroughly and involves all members of a family.
