By Adrián Melo

Este libro intenta responder estas preguntas abordando las imágenes y representaciones que los angeles literatura argentina brindó sobre los amores eróticos entre hombres y sobre el personaje gay en Argentina. Desde el comienzo ofi cial de l. a. literatura las imágenes sobre los angeles homosexualidad o sobre el sexo entre hombres han servido como metáforas para dar cuenta de lo Otro, lo innombrable, de los angeles barbarie, de lo abyecto, de lo anormal, de aquello que no puede formar parte del proyecto de Nación. Así, en “El matadero” Esteban Echeverría utiliza los angeles metáfora del sexo anal entre hombres para expresar l. a. violencia y l. a. barbarie de los federales. En En l. a. sangre (1887), l. a. imagen de l. a. homosexualidad aparece asociada al niño perverso y delincuente. En l. a. bolsa (1891), l. a. fi gura del judío enfermizo, afeminado y gay representa el peligro para el desarrollo del proyecto nacional. Sin embargo estas imágenes conviven, en el siglo XIX, con los angeles celebración del mundo de los maricones, las orgías de indios y las amistades intensas entre gauchos. Del mismo modo, el siglo XX encontrará tan pronto imágenes despectivas como amores sexuales entre guapos, peronistas y cabecitas negras. Desde l. a. construcción del personaje gay en el discurso literario del siglo XIX hasta las imágenes más celebratorias del amor entre muchachos hacia fi nes del siglo XX, este libro se presenta como pionero en el intento de sistematizar una historia de los angeles literatura homosexual en Argentina. Recuperando l. a. tradición de los angeles literatura como forma de militancia, propone los angeles creación de una tradición homosexual que permita luchar contra otros discursos, hegemónicos y negativizadores, ponga en cuestión l. a. heteronormatividad y los angeles dominación masculina y contribuya a los angeles lucha por l. a. expansión de los derechos civiles.
