Transitions how individuals in the transgender community use impression management

Campanaro, Candice S. 01 August 2011 (has links)
There exists an extensive body of literature focusing on impression management, with numerous studies addressing the effects of gender performance on members of the GLBT community. Despite a growing body of literature that centers on the differences between the genders, there exists a lack of research regarding the transgender community's ability to use impression management. This exploratory study addresses subjective experiences regarding transgender identity, and concentrates on self-definition and impression management in everyday life. It was found through interviews that "transition" is a temporary state that relies heavily on "passing" through impression management to create a new gender status. Once the new gender status is achieved, passing is no longer an issue and impression management is once again implemented in a more routine way similar to that of those who are not transgender. / ID: 030422740; System requirements: World Wide Web browser and PDF reader.; Mode of access: World Wide Web.; Thesis (M.A.)--University of Central Florida, 2011.; Includes bibliographical references. / M.A. / Masters / Sociology / Sciences

Transpersoners upplevelser av vårdpersonalens bemötande inom den öppna hälso- och sjukvården : En litteraturöversikt / Transgender people's experiences of health care staff's attitudes towards them in the general health care : A literature review

Andersson, Sofia January 2016 (has links)
Bakgrund: Begreppet transperson är ett paraplybegrepp vilket inkluderar alla personersom upplever att deras könsidentitet och/eller könsuttryck inte är kongruentmed det kön de blev tilldelade vid födseln. Prevalensen av transpersoner ivärlden är svår att uppskatta och på grund av den stigmatisering somgruppen utsätts för finns förmodligen ett mörkertal. Transpersonerdiskrimineras, utsätts för våld och övergrepp samt försätts ofta i hälsofarligasocioekonomiska tillstånd såsom social exkludering, arbetslöshet ochhemlöshet. Detta ökar risken för depression, ångest, suicid, missbruk ochpsykisk stress. Syfte: Att belysa transpersoners upplevelser kring bemötande från vårdpersonalinom den öppna hälso- och sjukvården. Metod: För att besvara syftet genomfördes en litteraturöversikt. Åtta vetenskapligaartiklar analyserades utifrån likheter och skillnader. Resultat: Resultatet presenteras utifrån fem olika teman vilka lyder: Vård som främjaridentitetsutveckling, Att avslöja sin könsidentitet, Kunskap och attityder frånvårdgivarens sida, Diskriminerad till följd av sin identitet och Ansvaretligger hos patienten. Diskussion: Diskussionen betonar hur vårdpersonal kan få ökad förståelse förtranspersoners behov utifrån Husserls livsvärldsteori. Konsensusbegreppetvårdande diskuteras i relation till de bristfälliga vårdrelationer mångatranspersoner vittnar om. Vidare diskuteras kunskapsglappet hosvårdpersonalen, dess effekter på vårdens tillgänglighet och behovet avutbildning. / Background: The term transgender is an umbrella term that include all people whosegender identity and/or gender expression is not congruent with theirassigned sex at birth. The prevalence of transgender people is difficult toestimate and due to stigma the numbers might be underreported.Transgender people are discriminated and exposed to violence and assault.Many end up in vulnerable socioeconomic situations that include socialexclusion, unemployment and loss of household which increases the risk fordepression, anxiety, suicide, abuse and mental distress. Aim: To illuminate transgender peoples experiences of health care staff’s attitudestowards them in the general health care. Method: A literature review was conducted to answer the aim. Eight scientificarticles were analyzed focusing on similarities and differences. Results: The results are presented in five main themes: Supporting the self-concept,To disclose ones gender identity, Knowledge and attitudes within the healthcare system, Discriminated due to ones identity and The responsibility lieson the patient. Discussion: The discussion emphasize how health care staff can gain understanding fortransgender peoples needs related to Husserl’s theory of the life world. Theconcept of care are discussed related to the substandard patient-caregiverrelationship that many transgender people report about. The lack ofknowledge within the health care system is discussed as well as how it willeffect transgender peoples access to care and the need of education.

Processos, desafios, tensões e criatividade nas conjugalidades de homens e mulheres transexuais

Lomando, Eduardo Marodin January 2014 (has links)
Diante das marcadas discussões sobre a diversidade sexual e de gênero no Brasil, as transexualidades têm sido foco de produções científicas e assunto recorrente da mídia. Apesar de ainda ocupar o lugar de abjeto, suas conjugalidades são exemplos de um deslocamento. O objetivo foi compreender quais são os processos que constituem essas conjugalidades transexuais e como esses são vividos nessa relação. Para se aproximar dessas respostas, essa Tese se divide em quatro artigos. No primeiro, disserta-se sobre o conceito de transexualidade em quatro áreas do conhecimento científico: biologia, medicina, psicanálise e ciências sociais. O conceito é explicado a partir de questões relacionadas à anatomia, genética, diferenças cerebrais, teoria fálico-edípica, psicopatologia, ao conceito de sexo como discursivo, de gênero como performatividade e expressão da diversidade em conflito com a heteronorma. No segundo artigo, foram revisados de forma sistemática os artigos que tratassem de demonstrar empiricamente as conjugalidades transexuais. Os aspectos relacionados às conjugalidades foram divididos nas categorias: atividade, excitação e orientação sexual; desafios sexuais dos casais; papeis de gênero e desafios do relacionamento conjugal. Houve um aumento na complexidade da conceptualização dessa diversidade conjugal. No terceiro artigo, o tema foi revisado somente em publicações nacionais e junto das travestilidades. Os resultados dos trabalhos encontrados apontam para um número variado de nomenclaturas dessas parcerias, com uma aparente fusão emocional conjugal que funciona como mantenedor das identidades de gêneros das/os participantes. Entretanto, encontra-se respostas criativas que permitem a quebra do efeito halo entre identidade de gênero e desejo sexual, conduzindo à autonomia identitária e ao prazer. No último artigo foram feitas entrevistas com três casais de homens e mulheres transexuais e seus cônjuges cisgêneros, analisadas a partir dos Estudos de Gênero (Queer e pós-estruturalistas). Os resultados demonstram que as conjugalidades transexuais descritas são mais um território que tenciona e desafia as normas de gênero e possibilita desfechos flexíveis, não direcionadas a nenhum dos extremos da heteronorma. Essa configuração específica pode possibilitar a desestabilização dessa tensão e permitir direções alternativas à lógica binária principalmente nos campos das performatividades sexuais, das divisões de tarefas cotidianas e das relações com as famílias de origem. / In view of the recent discussions about gender and sex diversity in Brazil, transsexualities have been the focus of academic development and a subject in the media. In spite of still being placed as abject, their conjugalities are an example of a displacement. The goal was to comprehend what are the constitutional processes of this transsexual conjugalities and how they are lived within these relationships. In order to come closer of these processes, this Thesis is divided in four articles. In the first one, the transsexuality concept is dissertated in four scientific knowledge areas: biology, medicine, psychoanalyses and social sciences. The concept is explained from issues regarding anatomy, genetics, brain differences, phallic-oedipal theory, psychopathology, sex as a discursive concept, gender as performative and as a diversity expression in opposition with the heteronorm. In the second article, a systematic review was done in relation to the transsexual conjugalities theme based on empirical evidence. Conjugal aspects were divided into the following categories: sexual activity, arousal and orientation; couples’ sexual challenges; gender roles and couples’ relationship challenges. There was an increase in the complexity of the conceptualization of this conjugal diversity. In the third article, the same theme was only revised in Brazilian publications, and the travestilidades theme was added. The results of the 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. In the last article, three interviews were made with transsexual man and women and their cisgender partners. They were analyzed using the Gender Studies (Queer and post-structuralism studies). The results show that the transsexual conjugalities described are another territory that put into tension and defy gender norms and make flexible outcomes possible, not directed to any of the heteronorm extremes. This specific configuration may destabilize this tension and enable alternative directions to the binary logic mainly in the fields of sexual performativities, household tasks sharing and the relationship with family of origins.

Legitimate Voices: A Multi-Case Study of Trans and Non-Binary Singers in the Applied Voice Studio

Sauerland, William R. January 2018 (has links)
This qualitative, multi-case study examined trans and non-binary singers in the applied voice studio. The purpose of this study was to explore (1) the impact of music participation on the identities of trans and non-binary singers, (2) the experiences of trans and non-binary singers taking private singing lessons, and (3) the strategies and practices of their voice teachers. Purposeful sampling of four singers included two trans men and two non-binary individuals. Four teachers with prior experience in teaching trans or non-binary singers included two teachers identifying as trans men, and two cisgender (one female, one male) teachers. Data were collected through interviews and lesson observations, presented through portraiture analysis to provide an insider’s view of the experiences, perspectives, and practices of the participants. Findings and implications emerged through cross-case analyses. The results indicate that gender impacts musical spaces. While participation in musical activities created an outlet for some singers to explore their trans or non-binary identity, the reification of the gender binary in musical spaces was oppressive for others. Students modeled high self-efficacy by showing perceived competence to change discriminatory policies and practices in music and the performing arts. Teachers demonstrated emotional support in the applied studio by being cognizant of student needs. While the training of each student looked distinct, teachers affirmed students through student-centered pedagogical approaches, allowing students to guide their vocal training and development. Teachers discussed the need for adept understanding of vocal technique in training trans and non-binary singers. All four trans men (two students and two teachers) discussed their voice modification through testosterone replacement therapy. The two non-binary singers, not engaged in medical voice modulation, discussed changes in their voices through singing lessons. The research posits that curricular development in vocal pedagogy courses is needed to educate singing teachers on cultural competency and trans and non-binary vocality. This study revealed the need to examine applied teacher readiness in educating trans and non-binary singing. Research on the longitudinal effects of testosterone on the voice is warranted. Additional scholarship is needed in working with trans or non-binary voices not engaging in hormone replacement therapy.

A research report submitted to the Faculty of Humanities, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts in Diversity Studies, July 2017 / Transgender students in higher education in South Africa are increasingly coming out. Though this coming out at huge to cost for them in terms of personal safety, alienation. potential harassment, bullying and discrimination, this group of students are insisting that campuses should be inclusive and safe for everyone irrespective of their gender, sexuality and/or sexual orientation.
