The recent academic success of the sexuality and gay and lesbian studies is crowned by enthusiastic celebrations, nonetheless quite misguided. This article aims to introduce some forms of homosexual knowledge not reducible to an academic will to know.

In particular, inspired by authors and writers such as Guy hocquenghem, Mario Mieli, Monique Wittig and Teresa de Lauretis, it measures the gap between the current approach to “lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender” identities, abstractly LGBT, as an academic theoretical one, and a queer-experience approach.

In light of this queer approach, Foucault’s work appears as a point of no return from which the history of sexuality is now entered in its theoretical moment, leaving aside other radically “different” forms of knowledge.

Foucault’s contribution is one of a border knowledge beyond which one can think and practice a dissident politics of identity, defined as an ethics and aesthetics of critical queer subjectivities.
