1. Barrile, Matthew James. En búsqueda del “Nosotros”: la representación de la identidad gay española contemporánea.

Degree: MA, Spanish, 2011, Bowling Green State University

With the death of Francisco Franco in 1975, Spain entered into a political and social transition—La Transición-toward democracy, which opened the door to freer sexual expression. Fast-forward thirty years when Spanish democracy is established, Spain became one of the first nations to extend marriage as an equal civil right to the gay and lesbian community when it legalized same-sex marriage in 2005. What this thesis explores, then, is contemporary Spanish gay identity as presented through three cultural products. Via the novel Huesos de Sodoma (2004) by Luis Antonio de Villena, the film Fuera de carta (2008; dir. Nacho Velilla) and the book of short stories Doce fábulas (2008) by Lluís Maria Todó, I explore how these cultural media portray the gay community, as marriage oftentimes takes center stage as either an institution that unifies or further excludes. Under the lens of compulsive heterosexuality, homonormativity, separation and assimilation, I find that no single archetype can represent the community as a whole, for identity is a fluid concept whose possessors approach it with individual conceptualizations. The contemporary Spanish gay identity, therefore, is an identity without concrete definition; it is still in a process of refinement as it battles with heterogeneity, homogeneity and everything queer in between. Advisors/Committee Members: Porbén, Dr. Pedro (Advisor).
