SANTOS, Ana Cristina. Public Frames of Queer Performativity and Media Representation in Portugal. Ex aequo [online]. 2009, n.20, pp.97-112. ISSN 0874-5560.

The media attention towards LGBT issues after the 1990s generated impacts on social representations of sexual orientation and gender identity, as well as on the Portuguese LGBT movement itself, which was forced to an increased political reflexivity about its own individual and/or collective image. Consequently, the subversive public display of the body is often excluded, even within the LGBT movement. Such stance mirrors an ideological choice that tends to disconnect LGBT activism of its central role in deconstructing the dominant heteronormative and heterosexist culture, representing disengagement in relation to the queer venture. Contributing to this debate are processes of “normalization of homosexuality” which result from, and create, a narrow understanding of the frames of queer performativity considered (un)acceptable in the public sphere.
