Felix is a FTM pre-transition trans man who often gets mistaken for a woman. They struggle with their identity and sexuality as they generally attract both genders. Felix meets Alex, a fellow expat who has returned to Argentina after 20+ years in the US. They bond over their past traumas and their quest for answers.
Felix grew up in Alabama, in a conservative Mormon family that rejected their true self. Felix faced discrimination and oppression from their community and the state laws that regulated their life choices. Felix moved to Argentina to escape their painful past and find happiness.
Felix is grounded but optimistic, has a strong sense of humor and resilience. They are curious and adventurous, yet long for acceptance and love.
In their day to day, Felix can switch from wearing loose clothes to something more fit as part of his struggle to fit in. Felix has short hair/buzzed cut.
