Honors Project

Abstract

This Honors Project reflects my four years of experiences as a student of the Hispanic Studies Department. The project incorporates my experience and research conducted during my study abroad experience in Argentina, Spanish, and critical study and theory. Throughout the project, I examine the dichotomy between assimilation and liberation as a framework for the LGBTQ movement, and the commonalities in the histories of the three countries. My thesis states that: as a result of globalization and what I call the transatlantic trade of ideas, the LGBTQ movements in Spain, Argentina and the U.S. have all adapted a limited and ultimately unsuccessful strategy (gay marriage) for liberation of their community.
