RIBEIRO, Letícia Jóia  and  GRANATO, Tania Mara Marques. Prejudice and parenthood: experiencias de parejas homoafectivas. Vínculo [online]. 2021, vol.18, n.2, pp. 1-11. ISSN 1806-2490.

Different family configurations have emerged in contemporary times due to social advancements. Among the emergent parenting, homoparenting is the one that distances itself from the social ideal the most, as it evidences the parents' sexual orientation and mobilizes fantasies that it interferes with the parenting exercise and their children's development. For this reason, we investigate the emotional experience of homoaffective couples regarding the prejudice experienced in parenting exercise. For this, we adopted a qualitative psychoanalytic approach, and we interviewed six homoaffective couples, making use of an Interactive Narrative, given its potential for ludic and protected access to the emotional experience of the participants. The interpretive analysis of the narrative material has resulted in fields of affective-emotional meaning, from which the "What family is this?" field emerges as emblematic of the prejudice suffered by the homoparental family as a result of a patriarchal and heteronormative view from society. Although homoaffective couples to some extent reproduce the heterosexual family pattern, their way of parenting exercise point out to creative alternatives and raise new questions.
