Abstract

Contemporary television fiction series is frequently described from concepts such as narrative risk, creativity, originality, and also transgression of technical and argumentative topics. However, some analyses conducted from epistemological non-hegemonic approaches, such as Gender Studies, feminist studies, studies on men and masculinity, LGBTI studies or Queer Theory, among others, have found that such transgressions are not always produced in relation to gender identities. Through a theoretical and aesthetic methodology, this article offers a tour through paradigmatic series with the purpose of making a reflection on the presence or absence of gender binary system
