Narrativas fora do armário: a identidade sexual de homens gays na cidade

Rafael Zanata Albertini, Márcio Luís Costa, Rodrigo Lopes Miranda

Resumo


Este estudo visa investigar os processos de reconhecimento da identidade gay numa capital brasileira com base em entrevistas narrativas com quatro participantes entre 21 e 42 anos. As entrevistas foram analisadas conforme a teoria da interpretação e da narratividade de Ricoeur. Os relatos mostram que a “saída do armário” possui algumas similitudes, como as primeiras percepções de “ser diferente” na infância e a elaboração da identidade sexual a partir da adolescência. Entretanto, as muitas singularidades indicam que as trajetórias para “sair do armário” consistem em processos de reconhecimento subjetivo e intersubjetivo, os quais dependem de fatores contextuais para produzir bem-estar ou sofrimento psíquico.

Palavras-chave
