Body construction and health itineraries: a survey among travestis and trans people in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The article examines health itineraries followed by Brazilian travestis , trans men and trans women in the affirmation of their gender, based on the survey Trans Uerj: Health and Citizenship of Trans People in Brazil.
In addition to an ethnographic study not addressed in this article, a survey was conducted among the trans population of Rio de Janeiro and its metropolitan region.
Unlike other surveys carried out recently in Brazil 1 , 2 , our study included not only travestis and trans women, but also trans men and non-binary people. Using the data produced by this survey, the present article will focus on discussing the health itineraries followed by the interviewees in their gender affirmation processes.
The survey entailed the development of a item questionnaire, with only one open-ended question eliciting gender self-identification. In order to facilitate future comparisons in Brazil and internationally, a previously used French questionnaire was used as a basis 4.
During a pilot stage in Rio de Janeiro in , this questionnaire was translated into Portuguese and adapted to the Brazilian context through discussions with the UERJ research team, leaders of Brazilian trans and travesti social movements, and professionals of the legal, health and social services accessed by this population.
