This paper studies how legal regulation and practices affect transwomen of Turkey in their everyday lives. Based on an ethnographic study conducted in Istanbul, it delineates instances of an experience of legality which applies only to transwomen in a given space and time and brings them the constant and pervasive risk of being deprived of their most basic rights. Such an examination not only demonstrates law’s multiplicity and heterogeneity against its unitary and sovereigntist understandings but also invites for a rethinking of the intricate relation of law and its effects on lived experiences.
