Cartas desde Buenos Aires: El movimiento homosexual argentino desde una perspectiva transnacional

Description

Abstract:
Fernández Galeano, Javier. 2019. Cartas desde Buenos Aires: El movimiento homosexual argentino desde una perspectiva transnacional. Latin American Research Review 54(3), pp. 608–622. DOI: https://doi.org/10.25222/larr.109. Tensions among different subjectivities along the axes of socioeconomic class, gender performance, and urban homosociability informed Argentinean homosexuals’ cultural expressions and militant strategies between the 1950s and 1980s. The homophile politics of respectability and the liberationist activism against the bourgeois moral order were rooted in the conflictive relationship between “entendidos,” or middle- to upper-class homosexuals who valued decorum and a self-disciplined masculinity, and working-class “maricas,” who performed a sexualized and hedonist femininity. Relationships with the transnational sexual dissidence movement emanated from and highlighted the political potential of these subjectivities. At the same time, the repressive context of the mid-1970s strengthened the role of international solidarity networks, which contributed to the continuity of the Argentinean Homosexual Liberation Front’s struggles after its dissolution in 1976.
