HENNING, Carlos Eduardo. LGBT gerontology: old age, gender, sexuality and the constitution of the ‘LGBT elders’. Horiz. antropol. [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.47, pp.283-323. ISSN 1806-9983.

This article seeks to present an anthropological and critical view of the development of a thriving eld of knowledge production (especially present in North America) which for some decades has investigated the aging processes among lesbians, gay men and bisexual and transgender people. This eld, still relatively unknown in Brazil and in South America as a whole, has been named “LGBT Gerontology”. Thus my interest lies in critically and systematically presenting and contextualizing the main trends, controversies and theoretical debates in this eld, as well as their recent implications on the complex constitution, legitimation and creation of public policies concerning the new social actors, who rise concomitantly – the “LGBT seniors”.

Palavras-chave : LGBT elders; LGBT gerontology; old age; sexuality.
