Chronic has emerged in Latin America as an ideal space for the voice of the excluded-for those who do not have much of traditional journalism, a space to tell what seems not to be happening, to account for it in his wonderful "banality". There's your political force especially when you witness who narrates and who stars-but no longer an informant subject to enunciation-a story that reveals and rebels: it reveals the dark side of society through an ethnography of everyday life of marginalized gay Chileans and drama in a patriarchal society and unjust against which the baroque writing rebels. This paper analyzes the chronicles of Pedro Lemebel published in Loco afán. Crónicas de sidario (2000) as a counter-writing sample that questions coloniality and biopolitics of power in an unequal, racist, patriarchal, homophobic society, discipline, such as Chile in the Pinochet era, and then democracy was recovered.
