    © 2018 Ex Aequo.All Rights Reserved. In the last twenty years, Ecuador has experimented a number of transformations in social rights that include trans people. In 1997, homosexuality was no longer considered a crime. From then on, those who were once considered criminals and disturbed individuals became citizens and subjects of rights. Travestites, transgender and transsexual movements have evolved into political subjects that have resisted the cruelest repressions in order to achieve a more livable life (Butler 2017). Using a qualitative methodology grounded in interviews with activists, press articles, biographical documents and LGBTI+ activist shared experiences, we present an exercise of trans memory construction.
