Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to briefly weave the dialogue of possibilities between the post­colonial studies and queer theory, an approach that is gaining ground in academia. Their fruitful spaces of translation have been offering to scholars and activists concepts beyond Eurocentric and hegemonic paradigms apropos of studies on gender, sexuality, hetero and homonormativity where the body emerges simultaneously as a locus of interpretation, violence and resistance.
