Subversion of political, sexual and gender order in Pedro Lemebel’s My Tender Matador


Pedro Lemebel is a Chilean performer and writer representing queer art. In his novel My Tender Matador he narrates a love story of two homosexuals: a drama queen and a revolutionary fighting against Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship. The aim of this paper is to analyse how the novel shows the political dimension of homosexuality and gender ambiguity, and how it subverts the values represented by the dictator, scrutinized in the book with a queer eye.
