AZEVEDO, Roberta Noronha; SCORSOLINI-COMIN, Fabio  e  SPIZZIRRI, Giancarlo. "You have to be born with that gift": experiences of a young travesti. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2015, vol.21, n.2, pp. 202-212. ISSN 1809-6867.

The aim of this case study was to understand the social, emotional and sexual experiences of a young travesti and understand their perception of gender identity. We used a semistructured interview. The analysis was conducted from the phenomenological method. The participant has 22 years, acting as a sex worker and says not feel like a man or a woman, but a travesti. In terms of their "own world", there is evidence that has a lesser degree self-awareness, with less integrated existential choices. This seems to prevent her from taking over and transforming their "own world", keeping thoughts, feelings and behaviors and rigid with little mobility. The researcher should be to accommodate this listening and understand it, especially the enhancement of its resources.

Palavras-chave : Gender identity; Transvestism; Case studies.
