Abstract

Resumo O texto aborda a homossexualidade e os direitos a ela relacionados em "Requiem sertanejo" de Rick Santos (2011), referenciando no conceito de luto de Derrida a análise desenvolvida. Propõe, assim, a ideia de que "Requiem sertanejo" emprega o luto como um processo constitutivo. O narrador do texto faz isso, ao recontar seu relacionamento com seu falecido amante, Zeca, relacionamento silenciado publicamente durante o tempo em que estiveram juntos, mas colocado a público no luto-narrativa com a morte do amante. Ao agir assim, o narrador enfrenta o legado jurídico de políticas, tais como "Don't ask, don't tell" e, simultaneamente, recupera os seus direitos por meio desse luto público.Abstract This paper employs as its theoretical framework Derrida's model of mourning to approach homosexuality and rights in Rick Santo's "Requiem sertanejo" (2011). This study proposes that "Requiem sertanejo", insinuates mourning as a constitutive process. This is achieved through the texts narrator's recounting of he and his ex-lover, Zeca's story that during their time together was silenced publicly, but mad public in this narrative of mourning. In doing so, the narrator confronts the legal legacy of policies such as "Don't ask, don't tell." At the same time, he reclaims his rights through public mourning.
