Default Transgender stylists making it in Soundview?

Well that is a first and kind of ironic business for that neighborhood. But I actually love great diversity stories like these.


Plenty of Hair, Nary a Mustache



LUPE’S PLACE is a shoebox-size beauty parlor and barbershop, wedged between a fried chicken shop and a party goods store, underneath the elevated No. 6 train on Westchester Avenue in the Soundview section of the South Bronx.

Thirteen miles from the city’s gay epicenters of Chelsea and the West Village, it seems an unlikely location for a popular salon where four of the eight hairstylists are transgender. Yet the salon is beloved among the men and women in the neighborhood, most of them Latino immigrants.
