SOARES AGRELI, Milene  and  ALVES DE TOLEDO BRUNS, María. An interlocution with some research on the affective-sexual relationships of transexual’s partners. liber. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.2, pp.125-129. ISSN 1729-4827.

With the rise of the Queer Theories in the 90s, a reflexion was suggested regarding the historical gender and sex categories as opposed to the heteronormativity paradigm. Thus, new subjectivities and new partnership models that explicit the sexual diversity have become visible. The present article focuses on an interlocution with the knowledge produced by some researchers so as to understand how these authors see the t-lovers affective-sexual relationships. Our search for studies on such phenomenon evidenced scarce research on the infinite hews of desire particular to the sexual diversity once such studies focus on pathological aspects of the relationship and are based in the quantitative research paradigm. As a result, we have been driven to seek the understanding of the t-lovers relationships through the qualitative research paradigm.

Keywords : Heteronormativity; Sexual Diversity; Transexual’s Partners.
