ADELMAN, Míriam. Paradoxes of identity: sexual orientation politics in thr 20th. century. Rev. Sociol. Polit. [online]. 2000, n.14, pp. 163-171. ISSN 0104-4478.

This article works from the perspective of social constructivism on sexuality with the aim of discussing the emergence of modern "sexual identities". I identify, on the one hand, the "invention" of homosexuality (and, consequently, of heterosexuality) in the discursive production of Victorian society. On the other hand, I discuss the form in which this new category becomes the basis of a political strife that vindicates sexual diversity, focusing mainly on the evolution of sexual orientation politics in 20th. century North American society.

Palavras-chave : sexual politics; gender identities; new social movements.
