BRANCALEONI, Ana Paula Leivar. Unleashing humor on the battlefield: invitations promoted by low-income transvestites. J. psicanal. [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.100, pp. 51-68. ISSN 0103-5835.

The aim is to analyze the humor among a group of transvestites in the inland of São Paulo state with psychoanalysis through an ethnographic route as its theoretical support. The specific objectives are to understand: the use of pajubá, a dialect shared by the group, in the humor produced by these people and the functions of humor in the relations established with heteronormativity. We will dialogue with excerpts from interviews and situations observed during fieldwork. Based on thematic analysis, several dimensions of the humor produced among them were identified, namely: constitution of modes of sociability, depathologization of transvestites, indication of the performance character of gender binarism, transformation of anguish into laughter and celebration of life.

Palavras-chave : humor; transvestites; psychoanalysis; pajubá.
