TransBrasil is a project, which aims deepen about gender identities issues from documentary photography perspective. It proposes to approach different social and cultural expressions that question the binary schemes masculine/feminine to understand the gender and identity process. Also, this project pursuit thinks about the possibility of multiples identities. To accomplish the project I have photographed Drag queen culture in Rio de Janeiro, Carnaval, LGBT community in Rio and Sao Paulo. For that reason, the proposal adopt the transgender concept, understanding the trans as a dynamic space without fix tags; as a border with an identity traffic which enable plurality and freedom to choose who each person wants to be, creating a gender hybridity.
