Le coppie lesbiche e gay in Argentina. Riflessioni sull’amore, la famiglia e la sessualità nella terza età omosessuale

Fernando Rada Schultze, Matteo Ingrosso


The approval of the same-sex marriage is one of the most progressive and egalitarian political measure in Argentina in the last decades. However, it had to overcome deeply grounded prejudices in the social imaginary, such as the supposed infidelity-promiscuity and affective instability that served as an excuse for deny this right. Thus, studying older longstanding couples, this article dismisses the stigmatizations of homosexual persons.

Following the theory of narrative identity, this work analyzes different manifestations of emotions between old men and old women and their vision through the years: love, desire, eroticism and their affective relationships in perspective. It also devels into the current situation of older gay men and lesbian women after the obtaining of this right. For this purpose, life stories and in-depth interviews as information gathering techniques were taken into consideration.


Keywords: narrative identity, older gay couples, equal marriage, love and erotism, family.
