From villain to hero: trans men and non-binary persons as care providers in Southern Europe
This article focuses on biographical narratives of trans men and non-binary people about care practices in the spheres of friendship and family. Recognising forms of resistance to adversity through informal networks of support, in this article, care provided by trans and non-binary people to (often) cisgender recipients is conceptualised as a heroic act. It is suggested that trans male and non-binary embodied experiences of care constitute a fundamental political platform to rethink sociologically concepts of care, masculinity and corporal dissidence within the framework of intimate citizenship in and beyond Southern Europe.
