TFF: Man. Pants. Woman. Skirt. Who is allowed to wear what? The answer hit Markus Kuotesaho, a junkyard entrepreneur from Siikajoki Finland, like a sledgehammer.

Mies. Housut. Nainen. Hame. Kuka saa pukea ylleen mitäkin? Siikajokelaiselle Markus Kuotesaholle vastaus tuli kuin lekan isku suoraan ohimoon

AA: Markus has been working as a truck contructor, a ditch digger, and a farmer stand-in. He has collected a record amount of car wrecks, 88, on his backyard, for junk use. But the life of a small enterpreneur is all fucked up.

This famous junk dealer, a prototype of masculinity, is also a tranny. It was a big struggle and hard work at first to come out. Markus dresses as a woman only for himself, no matter what anybody thinks. He even indulges in karaoke in drag, and the song is "My Way". The last word: "perkele!".
