Vargas Llosa has defended the rights of homosexuals in numerous articles and essays, a fact that has provoked strong reactions by homophobic individuals and organizations. In his fiction, homosexuality does not play an important role, but in the figure of Mayta we find, as early as in the 1980s, a homosexual in the process of emancipation. Against these trends in his work, the protagonist of El sueño del Celta suffers permanently from his supposedly problematic "sexual disposition".
Palabras clave : Vargas Llosa; rights of homosexuals; Mayta; sexual disposition.
