CARABALLO CORREA, Pablo Antonio. The limits of the “brotherhood”. Gay modernity and identity in Mexico. La ventana [online]. 2020, vol.6, n.52, pp.70-99.  Epub 09-Feb-2021. ISSN 1405-9436.

The paper starts from the concept of identity, as a discursive and normative construction that, in the specific case of gay identity, emerges within a middle, “white” and urban class, in a position to separate themselves from “traditional” forms of homoeroticism. From that point of view, we analyze the production of gay identity in Mexico, emphasizing the exteriors that constitute its limits and margins and the material and symbolic exclusions that it implies. It is proposed that these production depends on certain dynamics fundamentally crossed by a class structure, where the homosexual subject affirms his identity, as a white identity, through the daily updating of racialized objects of repulsion and desire, embodied in the body of la loca and el chacal.

Palabras llave : gay identity; gay modernity; racialization; whiteness; gay community.
