Resumen

HERRERA, Florencia; MIRANDA, Constanza; PAVICEVIC, Yanko  y  SCIARAFFIA, Valentina. “I’m a normal dad”: Parenting experiences of gay men in Chile. Polis [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.50, pp.111-137. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682018000200111.

The identities of father and homosexual can be seen as mutually exclusive. The purpose of this paper is to explore how gay men in Chile experience parenting. In-depth interviews were conducted with fourteen men who self-identified as homosexual and had become fathers in a previous heterosexual relationship or with a same-sex partner (through gestational surrogacy or a co-parenting agreement). The results show that gay fatherhood is not essentially different from heterosexual fatherhood. Two main differences were identified: a) homosexual fathers challenge cultural stereotypes that assume that a woman is necessary to raise a child and b) they develop strategies to protect their families from a hostile social environment. A heteronormative context that devaluates homosexuality directly influences the parenting experiences of gay men in Chile.

Palabras clave : Fatherhood; gay fatherhood; discrimination; surrogacy; co-parenting.
