PAZ, Diego; AMAZONAS, Maria Cristina Lopes de Almeida  and  MEDRADO, Benedito. Linguistic repertories in the Brazilian scientific literature about "homophobia". Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.72, n.1, pp. 72-92. ISSN 1809-5267.

The aim of this study was to perform a critical analysis of the Brazilian scientific studies on homophobia, a term widely used to describe the violence based on prejudice and discrimination related to the sexual orientation and/or gender identity. The theoretical-methodological approach used was the constructionism in social psychology, taking the linguistic repertoires concept as analytical operator. The evaluation explores the results of the research in two analytical axes which were illustrated by different linguistic repertoires: 1) the territories, contexts and micro-places in which the violence emerges; 2) the governmental coping strategies or the strategies used in daily life by the victims of this violence.

Keywords : Literature review; Homosexuality; Homophobia.
