PERES, William Siqueira  y  TOLEDO, Lívia Gonsalves. Existential gender dissent: resistance to biopower and confrontations. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.22, pp. 261-277. ISSN 2175-1390.

This article approaches the questions about the sexes, genders, desires and sexual standardization practices, starting from the appearance of new sexual identities that can be classified as queer - travesty, transsexual and transgender people. Still, we problematize how the manners of established forms of subjectivity and the hegemonic institutions marginalize such forms of existences, because of the immense difficulty in the encounter with the stranger, the different and the unusual. With those analyses, we are trying to provide the creation of devices to reduce the intensities of the discrimination, of the stigmatization, of the violence, so frequently lived by the people dissident from the heterosexual gender normative, what was reported about their own lived experiences.

Palabras clave : Travesty; Transsexual; Transgender; Gender identity; Queer.
