LGBT HistoryWelcome to Moscas de Colores' Blog, a space of information, opinion, and debate on such controversial issue as is sexual diversity. With these original articles, we want to share our integrating point of view based on science and common sense. This blog complements our particular LGBT+ project also published on this website. It is a work that involves the study of the words and expressions used against those who do not fit hetero-normative canons. Words that we shaped on original artwork, and we publish in the greatest LGBT dictionary on the network. If on the rest of this web we talk about what is or was, in this blog we go beyond to opine, criticize, reply, and sometimes also laugh.
Sexual IdentityPabupop – 07/09/20 –
This article aims to clarify and distinguish the concept of Sexual Identity, an issue that we consider important at this time when sexual diversity, and especially the human one, is an incontrovertible fact. Not so long ago, there were only men and women, two simple, fixed, and exclusive categories that described and (pre) conformed reality. But now, thanks to the…. Read more
g0y, not gayPabupop – 01/10/19 –
Some years ago I read an article explaining briefly what g0y men were. Even though I thought homoerotic relationships between heterosexual boys were more common than it is supposed, it surprised me. Wow! This word remained a pending entry in our LGBT Glossary until now, when the time has come to devote the g0y issue with the development and greater…. Read more
How many people are gay? LGBT statistics.toni – 01/05/19 –
How many people are gay? 1 in 10? The idea that one in ten people is homosexual is perhaps one of the most known and recurring “myths” about homosexuality. It has become part of our imaginary, and despite having been strongly protested by certain “conservative” groups and by the every-so-often appearance of new surveys, reports, and studies that question this….

Federico García Lorca and his Ode to Walt WhitmanPabupop – 17/08/17 –
As we began our peculiar search for words, we soon found these phrases, which we later knew as verses from Federico García Lorca and his Ode to Walt Whitman. Faeries, pájaros, jotos, sarasas, apios, cancos, floras, adelaidas… are, synonyms of Marica (pansy, sissy). The words remained collected in endless lists waiting to find their origin and explanation, until years later…. Read more

Justifying homophobia. “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22 (New Revised Standard Version). When writing the article Bible and Homosexuality: word of God, we wanted to focus on the origin of terms such as “sodomite” and “homosexual”, which can be found in different versions of the Bible, in order to….

Homosexual behavior and homosexualityPabupop – 11/06/16 –
I remember perfectly the day it started, was about 15 years old and at that time I was a boy in the Spain of the 80s who had had several girlfriends. I can not deny that there was always a background murmur and some sexual experiences during my childhood, also with girls, but all was relatively calm until one day,…. Read more
Tomboy and gender expressionPabupop – 24/03/16 –
We all have gender expression. And in most cases, the first time we stumbled upon our gender is at birth (or ultrasound scan) when we show our genitals, I am a girl, I am a boy. At that moment, everything on that day and at that place is supposed to be and will be a man or a woman, is…. Read more
