ABSTRACT: The purpose of this paper is to set the stage for a dialogue about the role of the erotic (sexuality) within the 'migrating' mode of transgendering. In particular, we want to raise a topic which is currently hotly debated within some sections of the transgender community, namely that of 'autogynephilia'.
