Discourses about homosexuality and gender in pedagogy courses

This article intends to discuss some conceptions about the theme homosexuality and gender produced by undergraduating students of a pedagogy course in Federal University of Paraná. The quantitative analysis of the observed data points in the beginning to a better acceptance of sexual and gender differences, however a more detailed analysis points to an assimilation of politically correct discourse, but without a significative change in the binary and excluding conceptions about the production of sexual and gender identities or a about the formation of new models of family in the contemporary world. Finally it remarks the necessity of more space in the curriculum of pedagogy's formation to discuss themes such as sexuality and gender.
