Abstract: This paper focuses on the development of discourses around sexual rights, linking tendencies in official global dialogues with national and local realities. Recognizing some of the factors that have facilitated or impeded discourses and action to promote sexual rights around the world, we explore the principles and processes of framing sexual rights and sexual citizenship. We consider political opportunity and the mobilization of resources as important as cultural and emotional interpretations of sexual rights… Show more

“…This study also highlights the direct and intricate ways in which the intra-and interpersonal are strongly influenced by the structural. Garcia and Parker (2006) consider how sociocultural norms, political opportunities, and framings of rights contribute to the theoretical conceptualization and development of sexual rights movements that are defined by global discourses, local contexts, and lived experiences. This section draws heavily on Garcia and Parker's casting of sexual rights as a movement, although we focus less on sexual rights as a top-down approach from the global to local and emphasize the cyclical and discursiveness of sexual rights as an articulation between the global and local (Tarrow, 1998 (2010) explained the importance and insights gleaned from understanding gay and lesbian social movements that first appeared in Latin America in the 1970s as a consequence, in part, of regional and national political histories and local specificities rather than stemming largely from the influence of the United States and other western countries (Carrillo, 2011).…”

“…As John Gagnon and other such thinkers have demonstrated so clearly, the idea of sexual pleasure, its definitions, its language, and its expression all typically come from below rather than from above. Social, cultural, religious, biomedical, scientific, and other nonstate actors are primarily responsible for respecting (or not) the right to sexual pleasure by adhering (or not) to fundamental principles of social inclusion, freedom, and human dignity (Garcia and Parker 2006). This aspect of sexuality is one of the central limitations of a sexual rights framework-but there are promises as well.…”

“…The rhetoric of rights loses its meaning if it is applied arbitrarily or differentially. The idea of sexual rights, in contrast, takes into account the importance of affording citizenship to all people, regardless of their sexuality or gender identity (Garcia and Parker 2006).…”

“…5 Legislación provincial que corresponde al fuero administrativo, a través de la cual se criminaliza discrecionalmente conductas enmarcadas bajo el término de "infracción" o "contravención". (García y Parker, 2006). Teóricas/os y activistas feministas, postfeministas, lésbicas, gays y queer han advertido el carácter patriarcal y heteronormativo de las construcciones dominantes de ciudadanía: si el arquetipo liberal de ciudadano ha sido pensado principalmente como burgués, varón, blanco, adulto, soldado y reproductor (Benedicto y Morán, 2003;Isin y Wood, 1999), entonces numerosos sectores de la población pueden identificarse como grupos subalternos (mujeres, homosexuales, transgéneros, bisexuales, jóvenes, etc.)…”
