Transvestites and transsexual multiple conjugalities: a systemic and social psychology review

The goal of this article was to perform a Brazilian literature review in relation to the conjugalities in the experiences of transvestites and transsexual men and women. The results of the eight papers found show a variety of forms to denominate these partnerships, with an apparent conjugal emotional fusion that works as a maintainer the participants' gender identities. However, there are creative responses that allow an interruption in the halo effect between gender identity and sexual desire and lead to identity autonomy and to pleasure.
