LOPEZ SANCHEZ, Ericka. Human rights for LGBT people and their limitations against the model of normative citizenship. Rev. Rup. [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.2, pp.1-22. ISSN 2215-2989.

Human rights are implemented within the framework of democratic states, as a powerful device that strengthens the quality of democracies, they position themselves as a truth discourse that resolves the deficiencies of nation-states. However, to the latter, this often exempts them from their daily responsibilities; as well as a self-reflection on the normative model of citizenship generated by liberal democracy that, by its own logic, favors exclusions that in turn correct human rights, thus falling into a tricky legitimization of democracies. The State, although democratic, has sex and this causes it to generate certain types of exclusions, so the objective of this work is to analyze the paths that have been taken in the construction of human rights for LGBT people, within the democratic contexts, and if these are the most suitable to break with the heteronormative, patriarchal and binary order that underpins the discrimination towards these populations on a day-to-day basis, as well as discuss the limitations they have.

Palabras clave : Human rights; LGBT people; liberal citizenship; intimate citizenships; sexual socialization rights.
