This dissertation, through an interdisciplinary approach, analyzes the relation between the minority attribute of lesbianism and thwarted access to citizenship experienced by lesbian women in Goiás. In order to achieve it, the field of Human Rights is taken from its theoretical and structural bases to carry out the proposed discussions. A major focus is given to the tension between conservative discourses of Human Rights, which consolidate practices of selectivity / restriction to certain minority groups (among them are lesbians) and the empowered and liberating speeches submitted by interlocutors who were interviewed. Along with the same tension and ambivalence, this dissertation includes a discussion of the ethical and moral dimension of the otherness detachment of “the other”. The aim was to discuss the 'human' category qualifiers and its implications on the perception and / or the experience of citizenship. Special attention was given to the potential for agency and redefinition of citizenship by interlocutors. The issues were brought to the context of a lesbian militancy in Goiás, which were analyzed to draw forth a specific reality, namely, the representatives of the militant group Colcha de Retalhos - UFG Saindo do Armário; and Alego - Lesbian Association of Goiás. Furthermore, it is important to mention that we did not discard the voices of interlocutors that echoed from elsewhere, and voluntarily contributed to their knowledge.
