Lesbian, Gay, and Transgender Athletes in Latin America






Palgrave MacMillan

Resumo (outro idioma)

This edited volume draws upon work from a wide range of established and emerging international scholars to provide an interdisciplinary analysis of sport’s complex relationship with masculinity. With a particular focus on Latin America, it examines the changing relationship between a range of contemporary sport and sexuality and gender expression, as related to lesbian, gay and/or trans athletes. Experts from Spain, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Colombia provide historical, sociological and anthropological perspectives on heteronormativity, masculinity, gender identity, sexual orientation, and the gender binary as they relate to sports clubs, Mexican martial arts, football, softball, sports media, games, and physical education. It will be invaluable to scholars and students in the fields of Gender Studies, Queer Studies, Sports Studies, and Men’s Studies.
