ESGUERRA MUELLE, Camila  and  BELLO RAMIREZ, Jeisson Alanis. Intersectionality and LGBTI Public Policies in Colombia: Uses and Displacements of a Critical Notion. rev.estud.soc. [online]. 2014, n.49, pp.19-32. ISSN 0123-885X.

This article offers an approach to the experiences of public policy formation that have used the concept of intersectionality, in particular, those policies aimed at LGBTI people in Bogota, Valle del Cauca and Colombia in general. We propose an analytical exercise of these experiences, in which we have each participated at different times. These exercises have challenged us in terms of bringing proposals from social movements and academia-such as black feminism and feminisms of color, among other actors-to the realm of the state. Our participation in the formation of these policies, and in writing this article, let us seek strategies that allow for movements among different political arenas and discursive practices, illuminating porosities in and linkages among different scenarios: the state, academia and social movements.

Keywords : Intersectionality; LGBTI; public policies; sexuality; gender.
