Title

Tackling Homophobia in Spain’s Football Culture: Changing the Discourse Through Art and Social Media

Publication Date

Fall 2020

Description

The stadium has long been a haven for hypermasculinity and homophobia, even while the rest of the country marches toward inclusivity. By examining three works—a chapter from the recently published graphic novel, Fútbol (2014), by Santiago García and Pablo Ríos, La partida (2015), a dance performance created by Vero Cendoya, and a recent play, El gol de Álex (2017), written and directed by Antonio Hernández Centeno—I argue that art can be a first step in queering the football stadium.
