GRAVE, Rita; OLIVEIRA, João Manuel de  and  NOGUEIRA, Conceição. Gender Disidentifications: Subversive performances. Ex aequo [online]. 2019, n.40, pp.89-104. ISSN 0874-5560.

In order to understand how people with non-normative gender expressions live, feel and experience their genders, eight interviews were carried out with people who attempt non-normative gender expressions, using the biographic-narrative interpretive method. The main conclusions are the way the diversity of experiences converges with queer resistance processes, proposing the deconstruction of gender. Gender disidentifications are the strategies that make it possible to do the diversity of genders, in a non-compliance with the norm, working in, with and against the dominant ideology, in the limbo of normativity, that is, the social non-place due to gender nonconformity.

Keywords : disidentification; gender; performativity; queer.
