The article focuses on homosexual activist and Argentine poet Néstor Perlongher and his book "O negócio do michê" with reference to gays in Brazil. He is considered as a critique of gay and lesbian identities in Brazil and struggle for homosexual rights in context of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The author stated that his book portrays urban cartography and several forms of sociability. Perlongher also portrays the politics of desire in earlier writings while deconstruction of personal and sexual identity in later ones.
