Summary: Estimates show that population aging occurs at an accelerated rate in Brazil, while
transvestites continue to experience precariousness collectively, being more exposed
to damage, violence and the deterioration of their social and economic support
networks. In this context, the present study aimed to narrate the collective
experiences of transvestites with a focus on the aging process. It was a qualitative
research WHERE Walter Benjamin's conversation and narrative theory were used as
devices for the production of transvestites' narratives. Rio Grande do Sul and Espírito
Santo were chosen as the research scenarios. Several aspects that influence their
aging process were narrated by transvestites. From their narratives, aspects such as
opportunities for formal education and work, access to health services to make bodily
changes and violence were shown to be phenomena that influence their aging
process and their perceptions of old age. Even in the midst of precariousness,
transvestites enhance their friendships, sharing experiences that make their lives
more livable. Through their narratives, they told moving stories that show their
struggles to exist and conquer their right to grow up transvestite.
