Basing on the recent studies about the sexualities and the gender and, specifically, the ones which are related to the sexual diversity, this article promotes an ethic discussion about the vicissitudes in the psychological clinic with LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) population. Considering the Resolution of Federal Council of Psychology nº 1/99, that establishes norms of performance for the psychologists which are related to the subject of the sexual orientation, we developed some discussions regarding the socio-historical construction of the homosexuality and about the heterosexuality, the hierarchies of the sexualities, and the therapeutic actions in the clinic addressed the to no-heterosexual public. Thereby, we diversify about the clinical discourse which is usually regulated by the work with heterosexual people, thinking critically the work is developed with people who are passing trough the vulnerability and invisibility because their unsuitability to the heteronormative precepts.
