The research aims to be focused on subjects, in order to recognize political, social, anthropological and individual spheres of subjectivity from bodies that was deemed as unintelligible whose suffering is produced by colonialists, colonizers and colonizatories dynamics from cisnormativity, heteronormativity and whiteness. In that way, proposes, into the limits and possibilities, a critical problematical about the questions on gender identity inside of Brazilian's matrix of intelligibility. The objective of this project is to research about how gender activism discourses affects on the performativity of trans bodies of color. One step to take is to give a name to the cisnormativity per passing by the political understanding of three common characteristics of colonialism, which is, the construction of difference and the different (binary gender as essence); connection with hierarchy values (body as only biology) and for the last, power. In that sense, this project receives influences by queer theory (VERGUEIRO, 2016; BUTLER, 2017) or "kuir" (MOMBAÇA, 2019), black feminism (CRENSHAW, 2019) and decolonial theory (KILOMBA, 2019), it will be made by a literature review about the topics above. Beyond that, it will be made a digital fieldwork (social media, sites, blogs, etc), specifically, by a digital [trans]ethnography (JARDIM, 2018) connected with exile-writing (ANZALDÚA, 2000) that will allow identify on the uses of digital media (MISKOLCI, 2011) a critical analysis of gender activism discourses.
