Abstract : The present study aimed to present and understand the increased use of virtual media by transmen. The central theme of this project is the emergence of transmen among the blogs by bringing into focus the self-writing that they produce on these spaces. Are problematized the discourses that promulgates the blogs on body modifications, social and family relationships, violence, public policies and on the complexity of identification?s processes and construction of masculinity. It is a netnographic writing inspiration, which was woven at experimental research by the virtual space of the blogosphere, which have the Internet as a possible context for exploration of information on the experiences and the ways of transmen?s lifes. In this sense, this work proposes reflections on the possibilities conditions of the (re)invention of transmen, signalizing the increase of virtual spaces as places of (re)existence and (re)creation of itself for those who wish to become transman. It was found that the transmen through its plurality expands the limits of categories and regulations imposed on them. It was also evidenced that sharing and solidarity among peer through the exchange of information and experiences made possible by blogging emerge as fundamental events in the materialization process and humanization of transsexuality?s experience.
