Homosexuality and Aids are the themes that Fabiano Gontijo addresses in this thought-provoking work. Without losing the grace, passion and rigor that such themes demand, Fabiano invites the reader on a journey through the Carioca Carnival and the homosexualities that have inhabited it throughout history. Through Anthropology and Social Sciences, the author presents how theory and field study can dialogue in the construction of a vigorous analysis on how homosexual identities are reconceptualized in interaction with the social dynamics of Carnival.
