By Javier Ugarte Pérez

Los representantes de los angeles primera (maricas, bolleras) estaban marcados por el estigma de l. a. inversión y pertenecían a l. a. clase trabajadora, por lo que contaban con escasas herramientas de resistencia. los angeles segunda generación, que surge a partir de los años sesenta en Estados Unidos —unos años más tarde en Europa— dio lugar a gays, lesbianas y transexuales. Las últimas identidades aparecieron dentro de una clase media en expansión, con los estudios de nivel medio/superior (e ingresos saneados) que los angeles caracterizan.

Así, maricas y bolleras eran víctimas fáciles de una represión organizada por las autoridades con el fin de eliminar las relaciones entre personas del mismo sexo (o, en su defecto, reducirlas), pero lesbianas y gays cuentan con armas de resistencia. El libro documenta el sustrato social y fabric donde nacieron estas formas de homoerotismo, analiza las razones por las que fueron perseguidas y las fuerzas que las impulsan. Para ello, Las circunstancias obligaban se centra en l. a. historia de dos países, Estados Unidos y España; el primero, como nación donde se fraguaron muchas de estas transformaciones, mientras el segundo es un ejemplo de acelerada modernización.
