Coronavirus infections, Intersectionality, Homeless people, Sex Workers, Sexual and gender minorities


The Covid-19 pandemic poses challenges to governments and societies. The effects of the epidemic in regions marked by extreme social inequality and in populations with greater vulnerability and precarious living conditions are harmful, which requires theoretical and methodological references to understand the impacts of the epidemic and build strategies to face it. In this critical essay, we address the interconnection of social markers of difference in the production of inequalities that affect social groups that are already socially marginalized, such as drug users living on the street, sex workers, domestic workers and LGBT youth, and analyze the potential of the intersectional perspective in analysis and the political construction of facing the problem.
