Summary

«En 1969 yo tenía 13 años y apenas estaba tomando consciencia de mi homosexualidad, aunque no conociera la palabra ni el concepto. Mi vida como lesbiana inició exactamente al mismo tiempo que el movimiento de liberación gay, y  ha transcurrido en paralelo a él durante cinco décadas.»

En un testimonio que abarca los últimos cincuenta años, Marina Castañeda, autora de los títulos clásicos La experiencia homosexual y El machismo invisible, relata cómo ha vivido la homosexualidad en sus aspectos personales, sociales y profesionales, en paralelo con los avances históricos del movimiento de liberación gay desde su inicio. En un texto que combina anécdotas y reflexiones basadas  en su vida, investigaciones y consulta terapéutica, describe sin tapujos sus relaciones de pareja y las reacciones de su familia, colegas y entorno frente a su orientación sexual. Habla de los privilegios de ser gay, pero también de sus costos. A la par, examina  los grandes cambios sociales, culturales y jurídicos que le han tocado experimentar, las interrogantes de hoy sobre la diversidad sexual y los retos del futuro. Un libro indispensable para todo aquel interesado en la evolución de las relaciones humanas.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

"In 1969 I was 13 years old and just becoming aware of my homosexuality, although I didn't even know the word or the concept. My life as a lesbian began exactly at the same time as the gay rights movement, and has occurred parallel to it during five decades."
 
In a testimony that looks at the last fifty years, Marina Castañeda, author of the classic titles The Homosexual Experience and The Invisible Male Chauvinism, relates how she has lived with her homosexuality in her personal, social, and professional life, in parallel with the historic advances of the gay rights movement since its inception. In a text that combines anecdotes and reflections based on her life, research and therapeutic consultations, she describes without taboos her romantic relationships, and the reactions of her family, colleagues and immediate environment to her sexual orientation. She talks about the privileges of being gay, but also its costs. At the same time, she examines the big social, cultural, and judicial changes that she has lived through, the questions of today about sexual diversity and the challenges of the future. An indispensible book for those who are interested in the evolution of human relationships.
