TORRES CRUZ, César  and  MORENO ESPARZA, Hortensia. Queer [Cuir] Sociology in Mexico? Thoughts About Conceptual Tensions in Sociological Studies on Sexuality. Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2021, vol.7, e551.  Epub Sep 13, 2021. ISSN 2395-9185.

Since the start of the twenty-first century, queer theory’s emergence in Latin America has triggered complex theoretical debates, particularly in the field of sociology where sexuality has been the subject of (limited) analysis since the 1970s. By reviewing some of the most important research into sexuality’s social aspects, this article seeks to analyze the conceptual precepts of sociological and cuir studies on sexuality in Mexico. The paper also proposes that a sociological-queer feminism can reveal-in a tense and situated interdisciplinary dialogue-various power mechanisms that shape sexuality in Mexico, as well as the complex possibilities of resignifying heteronormative mandates.

Keywords : sexuality; sociology; cuir theory; gender studies.
