The goal of this paper is to document the significant contributors, contents, methodologies, developments, and theoretical frameworks relevant to the anthropological study of homosexuality in Latin America. Among other data, this research project yields regional accounts of gay / lesbian liberation movements, transvestitism, HIV I AIDS, and the intersections of gender and power in countries such as Mexico, Brazil, Cuba, and Argentina. Also included in this review are critical assessments of academic sources, ethical dilemmas faced by ethnographers, and spaces available for original research on homosexuality in Latin America. Though this documentation is not totally comprehensive, one can conclude the scarcity of lesbian studies in Latin America and thus the opportunity for fresh ethnographic and applied fieldwork.
