Word of the Gay: "Fa'afafine"

A "fa'afafine" is a third gender term specific to Samoan culture. They are biological males who assume female gender roles and are accepted by their society.

I watched a show on this on T.V. The learning channel or something. The family wants a Fa'afafine. It's really something.

I saw a show on it a while back to, it may have been an ABC special or 20/20 documentary? It's fascinating and really nice to see they are accepted.
