In Brazil, as in many other countries around the world, the political balance has shifted to the far right, as was recently reflected in the election of the former army captain Jair Bolsonaro. Characterized by a conservative populism, this new administration, which took office on Jan 01, 2019, represents new challenges for the advancement of progressive social movements, minority groups and the implementation of human rights policies in Brazil. In this presentation, I will highlight the political context that gave rise to this new administration, and the impacts of the new administration’s ideological positions specifically with regards to the LGBTQ community.
