Hembros: A thematized queer phenomenologic study on the lived experiences of trans-people in Quito-Ecuador
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this essay is to examine the narrated experiences of three Trans- masculine activists in relationship to the emergence of a new term "hembros" as a forum for diverse forms of gender expression and subjectivity. The present study is an attempt to examine gender expression from a nomadic subjective approach and a queer phenomenological theoretical framework. The results of this study have shown that gender expression, although not free from the tensions that social sanctions present, could be proposed from different locations of embodied gender subjectivity. Meaning that awareness about the gender system and the structures of power, and working within those frames, one can create new notions of gender expression, taking the body as a starting point.
