Abstract | Full Text

This article transcribes a conversation between Laura Álvarez and David Aruquipa, both militants of the LGBT community of Bolivia, about their participation in the “First Planetary Summit of Decolonization and Depatriarchalization” organized by the Bolivian government in 2015. This event sought to strengthen alliances and seek common ground among oppressed minorities, but the conference also revealed the gap between indigenous meanings of “decolonization” and Bolivian gay and transgender activists anti-hegemonic claims regarding sexuality and gender assignments.
