ZILIOTTO, Denise Macedo; DAVIES, Simone Maria  e  ITAQUI, Cintia. The difference in other contexts: transsexual professionals with higher education in the world of work. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2021, vol.24, n.1, pp. 1-15. ISSN 1516-3717.

The article aims to analyze transsexual professionals narratives about their experiences in the world of work. In order to do this, a qualitative research with exploratory approach was developed. It was carried out through interviews with three transsexual women and one transgender man who have employment relationships in companies and live in different Brazilian cities. Data collection, submitted to content analysis, identified that professionals employability is related to aspects such as schooling and race. The non-identification of transsexuality at work is perceived as a facilitator, due to the passability and cisnormativity of bodies; however, situations of discrimination were experienced due to transphobic attitudes in selection processes and in the work context. The change in civil registration and opening to difference in companies are defended as decisive by the participants, who pointed out the importance of affirmative actions focused on education and the world of work as structural issues.
