This project aims to produce knowledge about the meanings that young and lesbians women attach to love. We believe that it needed to approach this theme to think not only in youth as a time of life that produces intense developments in the field of health and education, but also to take into account the importance of generating knowledge about the possible configurations that occur among people who live erotic-love life non-heteronormative and at the same time, the impact both of romantic love as heteronormativity, the construction of these other types of relationships. We will interview 10 women who call themselves lesbians in order to enable them to narrate their experiences with homosexual relationships and the meanings they attach to love. At first we organize pilot interviews to then rethink the final interviews. The whole process will be crossed by the contributions of the theory of organizing models of thought, theory which we also used to the methodological analysis of the material produced. (AU)
