Abstract

This text deals with the trajectories of political militancy and literary production of Néstor Perlongher and Pedro Lemebel, circumscribed in the theme of dissenting intellectuals in Argentina and Chile during the 1970s. The research was constructed from the problematization and debate about the subjectivities and representations around the role of homosexual militant-intellectuals in the revolutionary process of both countries. From this, the general objective will be to discuss the stigmatization professed by the left towards the dissident collectives of the nations involved, taking as specific goals the description of the militant journeys of each author and the socio-historical analysis of the works "Evita live (in each hotel accommodation)" and" Manifiesto (I speak for my difference)", respectively.
Regarding the main hypothesis, it is argued that the resources of the Neo-Baroque genre in the literary works of Perlongher and Lemebel were used to denounce the practice of the revolutionary left in Argentina and Chile by sparing efforts to transform the conservative socio-cultural canons firmly entrenched in the worldview of Western and Christian society, especially in the field of sexuality.
