Homosexual conjugality and the struggle for sexual and reproductive rights divides the homosexual movement and is quite a challenge to understand the conceptions that support the passionate defenses and the opposite positions to the 'gay marriage' and/or the sexual and reproductive rights. The purpose of the present paper is to understand how conjugality and parenthood are represented and accepted (or not). Careful research has been conducted among homosexual groups, showing that they bear conflicting views over such polemic issues. Among many other findings, it has been seen that one of the issues agreed by most of the researched people is the civil partnership and that the dark side of the homosexual struggle is against the violence and homophobia, still strongly pronounced in Brazil.
Keywords : civil partnership; conjugality; homosexual movement; parenthood.
