Abstract

PELUCIO, Larissa. At night, not all cats are gray: notes on transvestite prostitution. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2005, n.25, pp. 217-248. ISSN 0104-8333.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-83332005000200009.

In this article transvestite's prostitution is discussed trying to evidence the importance of the prostitution territories as fundamental places for the construction of the "transvestite self". The article also discusses different emic categories that classify the transvestites, especially in the sexual trade, bringing to the discussion the relationship of transvestites with their clientele. The violence of the streets, the use of drugs, the dream and the reality of prostitution in Italy also have room in this work crossed by the affections, disputes, territorial demarcations and the sense of the affective and commercial relationships that involve the transvestite universe.

Keywords : Transvestites; Prostitution; Customers; Gender; Sexuality.
