STANG, María Fernanda; GALAZ VALDERRAMA, Caterine  and  LARA EDWARDS, Antonia. Prefiguration of the migrant and LGTBI+ subject in the Chilean regulations on migration and sexual diversity. Estud. front [online]. 2023, vol.24, e114.  Epub June 02, 2023. ISSN 2395-9134.

Based on a corpus composed of normative texts from Chile referring, on the one hand, to international migrations (1975 and 2021) and, on the other, to sex-gender diversity (2012 and 2018), this article aims to analyze the way in which prefigurations of the migrant subject and of the subject of gender-sexual dissidence and diversities are constructed, in addition to their implications for LGTBI+ migrants. The approach is made from a critical analysis of feminist discourse. The analysis allows us to observe prefigurations that adopt a position of unidimensional identity reification, conceiving this subject, on the one hand, exclusively as a hetero-cis-normed economic migrant, and on the other, as a vulnerable gender-sexual minority, thus implying an erasure of LGTBI+ migrants and the specific inequalities that affect them.

Keywords : migration legislation; sex-gender diversity; inequalities; public policies; identity.
