Abstract: This article compares the discourses produced by the transfeminist movement, medicine and psychoanalysis, seeking points of encounter and divergence in relation to the question of the body in trans people. We conducted a literature review through Laurence Bardin's Content Analysis. The categories that stood out were health / illness (medicine), autonomy (transfeminist movement) and subjectivity (psychoanalysis). The three discourses, articulated through these categories, made evident the existence of different meanings attributed to the body, from the production of truths of each one. Dialogue, necessary when it comes to corporal interventions, claims of rights or understanding of possible suffering, may or may not occur depending on the discursive regime in which meaning to the body is attributed.
