Dear TLSA Colleagues

I am seeking any examples or stories about how Timorese indigenous culture
is or was flexible (now or in the past) toward third genders, fluid or
non-binary gender expressions.

I have accessed this old black and white picture of a man weaving tais
which I found accompanying an article Josh Trindade wrote for the ETLJ
Forum. Does anyone have information on this photo? Who the man is or where
this photo was taken? I can't identify the style of tais in the photo
either and wondered if anyone could?

Also if anyone knows of any sources that give such examples or talk about
this issue, please let me know.

best wishes
