MAUREIRA SOLIS, Ingrid. The deconstruction of proper names in the nomination for transvestites. Alpha [online]. 2009, n.29, pp.155-165. ISSN 0718-2201.

This article argues that the act of nomination for transvestites, deconstructs those appropriate functions and elements that have been attributed to the name itself, as are: sex-gender correspondence, personal identity, biographic lineality and Lacan's Name-of-the-Father function. This nomination is presented as an inappropriate act that makes it possible to think of the name as a trace that doesn't not stand for a unique subject representing these elements.

Keywords : Deconstruction; proper name; sex-gender relationship; personal identity; biographic lineality; Name-of-the-Father function.
