This anthropological volume examines Latin American male homosexualities from theoretical, critical, ethnographic, ethnohistorical, and lexicological perspectives. The authors discuss male homosexualities in Spanish-speaking societies, in Brazil, and in indigenous societies in relation to family, society, culture, politics, economy, and ethnicity. They discuss homosexuality in pre-Columbian indigenous societies and in colonial and modern Latin America. Contributors explore wide-ranging issues such as homosexual categorization, machismo and homosexuality, the activo-pasivo cultural dichotomy, the gay image in Chicano fiction, male homosexuality and Afro-Brazilian possession cults, the gay movement and human rights, and others.
