During the federal administrations of Luis Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) (2003-2010), several LGBT policies were formulated and implemented in Brazil. Those federal policies have induced the development of several other policy initiatives related to this subject in subnational governments during this same period. Nevertheless, due to its low level of institutionalization and its dependence on networks of activists inside the bureaucracy of the Federal Government, since Rousseff (PT) administration, and specially during the presidential terms of Michel Temer (MDB) and Jair Bolsonaro (no party), federal LGBT policies and inductions to subnational governments have been mostly discontinued. What are the factors that influence the continuity of LGBT policies in subnational governments once federal inductions no longer exist? This project seeks to answer this question and proposes as hypothesis that the state capacities of local governments, the presence of networks of actors committed to the implementation of LGBT policies in those governments (mediated by the presence of institutional fits and allies in power), and the shape of the politics that were developed are factors that influence the continuity and discontinuity of those initiatives. To answer this question and assess the value of this hypothesis, this project proposes a comparative analysis of LGBT policies developed by the city administrations of São Paulo and Fortaleza. (AU)
