SEQUEIRA ROVIRA, Paula. Perceptions about lesbianism in the newspaper la república between 1965 and 1985. Diálogos rev. electr. hist [online]. 2021, vol.22, n.2, pp.72-89. ISSN 1409-469X.

This document will try to focus on the analysis of some reports written in the newspaper La República between 1965 and 1985. This will be done in order to problematize the vision that existed about “the lesbian” or about women who had intimate or loving encounters with other women. It will be shown how this information was qualitatively and quantitatively different from what was done about gay men. In their case, the amount of news where the topic of lesbianism was exclusively dealt with was much smaller and there was a greater concentration on describing aspects related to their love relationships and the world of show business or movie projections where lesbian scenes appeared.
