Manifesto Transpofágico (Transpophagic Manifest) is the transpophagy of a transpologist’s transpology. “Today I decided to wear my own skin. My travesti body.” Renata “wears” her own body to narrate the historicity of her corporeity. “My body came before me, without me asking. It is older than me.” Renata feeds off of her “transcestrality”. She eats, digests it—transpophagy. “Of my story, or my stories, or our stories—most are alike.” Renata talks about the transgender body’s social and image construct, sexualisation, stereotypes, structural transphobia, criminalisation, mass incarceration, violence and the pathological rendering that pervades these bodies, like hers. Travesti living. She calls upon us to look, to watch, to see her transvestite body. She brings it to us first-hand. The travesti body as an experiment, a lab rat. This is a transvesturgy, a writexperience. The manifest of a travesti body. The sign blinks TRAVESTI. TRAVESTI. TRAVESTI. — Renata Carvalho
