La otra subversión: la emergencia del " género " en el proceso de paz en Colombia

Abstract : The subject of the article is sexual diversity in Colombia's peace process. Although this topic's significance is acknowledged in the debate previous to the October 2016 " peace referendum " , rejected by a narrow majority of Colombians, there are divergences on the sense of this rejection. In this article, we argue that the " gender " question was not a manipulation lead by FARC's opponents, as it is often told. Instead, we believe that this is a structural variable in the country's political and social life, and that it will have an increasingly relevant role in the public debate. The article points out how feminist organizations showed other organizations working LGBT's issues the way to Havana, where the peace negotiations took place. It also shows the place held today by Catholic and Evangelical churches and parties, as well as the role played by the sexual minorities human rights defense organizations. It also analyzes the complex issues that arise when the FARC must count on these organizations as allies, even more so if we take into account that this very guerrilla can be questioned for sexist and homophobic actions. Finally, the article showcases why the subjects of "gender" and "sexual diversity" will be subversive in the coming years political and social debate in Colombia.
