Por onde andam as políticas públicas para a população LGBT no Brasil

Luiz Mello Rezende Bruno de Avelar Daniela Maroja About the authors

The purpose of this article is to reflect on the effectiveness of plans, programs, and conferences produced and carried out by the Brazilian federal government within the process of construction of public policies for the LGBT population in the country. The text privileges four documents that deal with the promotion of the human rights and citizenship of this population: the "Program Brazil Without Homophobia" ("Programa Brasil Sem Homofobia"), the "Proceedings of the I National LGBT Conference" (I Conferência Nacional LGBT), the "National Plan for the Promotion of LGBT Citizenship and Human Rights" ("Plano Nacional de Promoção da Cidadania e Direitos Humanos LGBT"), and the"3rd National Program of Human Rights" ("Programa Nacional de Direitos Humanos 3"). In this article, we carry out a critical analysis of these proposals based on a series of interviews with public sector managers, in the federal, state, and municipal spheres, as well as with civil society representatives.
