BARBOSA GADELHA, Kaciano. Notes from a Queer Archive. Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2021, vol.7, e581.  Epub Sep 13, 2021. ISSN 2395-9185.

In this article I outline some theoretical and critical considerations of Latin America queer theory from an anti-colonial and critical perspective on the geopolitics of knowledge. I examine the concept of the archive as a theoretical and methodological tool for connecting the theory with the production of memory, questioning a certain colonialization of the term “queer”. Gloria Anzaldúa informs my methodological approach in imagining a queer space-time that connects the various strands of colonial epistemology. I also incorporate t intersectional and anti-colonial ideas from different contexts of knowledge production. The article concludes with a proposal to relocate queerness as part of a broader debate about community boundaries and imagination.

Keywords : anticolonial; archive; queer; geography; intersectionality.
