Trans* Legalities: Preliminary Study of Files on the Recognition of Trans* Identities in Peru

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

In the present article, the authors propose a novel methodology for the identification and analysis of the speeches made by plaintiffs and judges in cases involving the recognition of trans* identities. Both conclude that these actors converge from rigid binary, pathologising and genitalising discourses, making very few references to the most recent contributions that the law and social sciences have made to the understanding of gender identity.
