Abstract
Although the field of transgender studies has grown exponentially during the last decades, little is still known about gender affirmative medication outside institutionalized settings. Based on group interviews and autoethnographic accounts, this thesis sheds light on the experiences of practitioners of unprescribed hormone replacement therapy. The focus will be put on how the Swedish welfare state is active in processes of legitimization and precarization of gender through medicolegal discourses.
Abstract (Swedish)
Trots att forskningen kring transpersoner har ökat exponentiellt de senaste decennierna så vet vi fortfarande lite om den könsbekräftande vården utanför samhällets dominerande institutioner. Utifrån gruppintervjuer och självbiografiska inslag möjliggör denna uppsats en ökad förståelse för de som utför hormonbehandlingar utanför det officiella vårdsystemet. Uppsatsen fokuserar främst på hur den svenska välfärdsstaten genom medicinsk reglering är aktiv i processer som legitimiserar och prekariserar kön.
