LEITE, André Filipe dos Santos  e  SANTOS, Claudiene. Gender Technologies and magic: hormonotherapy and trans* women's life experiences. Ex aequo [online]. 2018, n.38, pp.83-94. ISSN 0874-5560.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22355/exaequo.2018.38.06.

We analyzed the relation between the hormones and the life experiences of trans* women as a symbolic aspect of the mystique character that the health system can assume, specially when its political projections signal a possible depathologization of life experiences. Through a queer methodological perspective, aligned with elements from the Foucauldian discourse analysis, we suggest, based on the interviews and the observation of five trans* women, that the hormone, with its mythic surrounding narrative, becomes a social and political agent that, notwithstanding being nonhuman, creates possibilities of humanity by instituting unusual gender technologies while providing health care services to trans* women. In this way, in this relation with the hormones, we observe how trans* women recreate themselves and how the subjectivation processes happen.

Palavras-chave : Health; hormones; trans*; gender technologies.
