Resistances and rejections in the experiences of transsexual people in Candomblé of Bahia
The article analyzes the experiences of three trans persons in Candomblé’s terreiros in the city of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. Through in-depth interviews, these people report on how their gender identities were not respected (interdictions on clothing, interpersonal relations and the organization of ritual work) and what strategies they developed to continue practicing the Afro-Brazilian religion and have their identities respected.
