BARRIENTOS, Jaime  y  CARDENAS, Manuel. Homophobia and Quality of Life in Gay Men and Lesbians: A Psychosocial View. Psykhe [online]. 2013, vol.22, n.1, pp.3-14. ISSN 0718-2228.

Homophobia still exists in many Western societies, including the Chilean one. Only recently psychosocial studies have been conducted to assess homophobia and its impact on the life of sexual minorities. This paper deals with the latest findings on this issue. Moreover, the paper is a call for studying prejudice and its effects on sexual minorities from a more comprehensive perspective, not from an individualistic standpoint that considers homosexuality as a "problem", without paying attention to the social function of prejudice, that is, sustain and legitimize the dominance of some groups over others.

Palabras clave : homophobia; quality of life; psychosocial; Chile.
