Albanian sworn virgins are a gender role in Albania and the Balkans. Sworn virgins are those assigned female at birth who take a vow of chastity in order to be allowed to dress and act in a traditionally masculine way.

Some sworn virgins may identify as trans men, but others identify as cis women and take on the role to gain more freedom, escape arranged marriages, or to be allowed to act as head of household for female relatives.
