Abstract

jats:pLatin American has made remarkable progress in the last twenty years regarding LGBTQ+ rights. More recently, LGBTQ‐related issues have had major impacts on national and regional politics. However, most of the literature about Latin American social movements still largely ignores LGBTQ+ movements. This article argues that including LGBTQ+ movements in social movements research is essential to further our understanding of LGBTQ+ politics in the region and of Latin American politics and social movements more broadly, as well as to address the enduring lack of academic engagement with gender and sexuality as political topics.</jats:p>
