Abstract

This essay focuses on the representations of homosexuality in the works of Gilberto Freyre (1900-1987), particularly in the way in which such figurations change the notions of racial contact and miscegenation. By looking at the configuration of the "homosocial desires" in some of Freyre's texts, we can understand the role that the narratives of interracial and homosexual relations play in structuring what he calls "the Brazilian patriarchal family" and, thus, the canonical representation of Brazil as a mestizo nation.
