Transviance or transviancy is the act of transviating or transversing, the quality or ability of someone who transviates or transverses, the practice of transviation or transversion, describing a transversed or transvert (or transverted) or transviated or transversal individual. An identity adopted by some trans* individuals based off “deviance”, “deviation”, “invert”, transvolution and other concepts related to it.
Although it can be the literal translation of transviadagem, a term commonly denominating a trans f*gness. The gender flexion, in the nouns transviado and transviada, can denominate a transmasculine and a transfeminine orientation-variant individuals, respectively, while transviade a transneutral individual. However, just as queerness is reclaimed in English, the self-identifying adoption of such labels are validated through pajubá.
