    • travesti: In Brazil, being a travesti can vary from being a trans woman to a different concept of gender. For a long time people believed that a travesti was a "man" who felt like a woman but still felt pleasure with "his" member, which is untrue for a lot of cases. In some cases, it can be used to refer to drag queens. Mulher Pepita, a travesti, claims that she always knew she was a travesti and that it is different from being a trans woman. In general it falls under the binary trans woman umbrella.
