Gays in Latin America

Read Javier Corrales’ article “Gays in Latin America: is the closet half empty?”, published in the magazine Foreign Policy, in February 2009. In the article, Corrales signalizes that “the region is becoming more gay-friendly. A generation ago, Latin America was the land of the closet and the home of the macho. Today, movements fighting for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights are taking advantage of the region’s more globalized, open regimes.”
