VAZQUEZ, Claudia Lazcano; TONELI, Maria Juracy Filgueiras  and  OLIVEIRA, João Manuel de. Necropolitics, intersectional public policies and trans citizenship*. Ex aequo [online]. 2019, n.40, pp.141-156. ISSN 0874-5560.

The article argues the need to consider the intersectional perspective in the formulation and implementation of social policies that, in Brazil, seek to guarantee citizenship to trans* people. For this, the ascending figures of assassinations of trans* people in the country and the structural LGBTphobia and negligence of the state for their confrontation are analyzed, based on the necropolitic concepts of Achille Mbembe and the necrobiopower of Berenice Bento. Subsequently, the notion of hyphenation is used, as a theoretical and methodological resource for the articulation of knowledge between the field of public policies and intersectionality, a strategy that seeks to generate spaces favorable to trans-citizenship

Keywords : Necropolitic; public policies; intersectionality; trans-citizenship.
