Está a decorrer um estudo com pessoas transexuais, no CIS - Centro de Investigação e Intervenção Social, do ISCTE – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa.

Quais os objetivos do estudo? O estudo insere-se numa investigação de doutoramento em Psicologia, e tem como objetivo aumentar o conhecimento científico acerca da população transexual portuguesa. Esperamos, deste modo, contribuir para a implementação de políticas sociais e de saúde mais responsáveis e eficazes.

Em que consiste o estudo? De forma a ouvir as próprias pessoas, sobre questões que lhes dizem respeito, estamos a realizar entrevistas individuais a pessoas transexuais. Nas entrevistas são abordadas questões relativas à história de vida e, se for o caso, ao “processo de transição”.

Quem pode participar? Qualquer pessoa cuja identidade de género não é congruente com o sexo atribuído na altura do nascimento, independentemente de se encontrar, ou não, em “processo de transição”.

A entrevista é confidencial? Sim. As entrevistas são realizadas individualmente, por um investigador, com garantia de confidencialidade. As informações recolhidas são depois tratadas de forma anónima, isto é, sem qualquer referência que identifique o(a) participante.

Onde e quando se realizam as entrevistas? Em data e local a combinar, de acordo com as preferências dos(as) participantes.

Como participar? É fácil. Basta contactar-nos e agendaremos uma entrevista de acordo com as suas preferências. Também nos pode contactar para esclarecer qualquer dúvida ou obter mais informações.

Estamos atualmente numa segunda fase de recolha de dados. A realização do estudo está dependente da participação voluntária de participantes. A sua colaboração é fundamental!

La Zona Roja, donde vale todo y la Policía brilla por su ausencia
La noche es agradable. Las luces de los autos circulan casi sin pausa por la avenida Figueroa Alcorta, en los Bosques de Palermo. Al llegar a la esquina de Intendente Guerrico, frente al club GEBA, todo es oscuridad. Los árboles no dejan pasar la luz de la única columna de alumbrado que está a pocos metros. Entre ellos apareció uno de los cuerpos. El otro estaba en una zona más luminosa, donde el movimiento de personas, pasadas las diez de la noche, es nulo.
