VENCATO, Anna Paula. Between "real" and "virtual": notions of truth and risk in a Brazilian club for crossdressers. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2015, n.44, pp.367-390. ISSN 0104-8333.

I propose to examine how hierarchy is build among associated members from a Brazilian club of crossdressers, using the notions of "real" and "virtual". This club is organized from the internet. I still seek to understand how these concepts impact the negotiations and social relations inside and outside the club in the production of "real crossdressers". I also analyze the extent to which they build different places for different club members guided by the sociological notions of gender, sexuality, stigma and seniority.

Keywords : Internet; Gender; Cross-Dressing; Sociability.
