On February 4th, 1803, in Guatemala City, the criminal court (church) began prosecuting
Aguilar for the crime of double concubinage with men and women. As the
court pursued the case against Aguilar, whose sexual ambiguity quickly
came to the fore, the judge referred the matter to the court of the
Royal Protomedicato, the bureaucracy that regulated medical and health
issues in the colonies. The Protomedicato requested that the physician
Narciso Esparragosa examine Juana Aguilar, called by the court “a
suspected hermaphrodite,” and present his findings.
She became know as Juana the Long for her persecution, and after the examination, the scandalous size of her clitoris.
