English abstract:The existence of homosexuals who follow the Catholic faith is a reality. Nevertheless, traditional Christian religions commonly deal with homosexuality in a very confrontational way, so that homosexuality and Catholicism are two experiences that are often seen as incompatible. In this paper, we analyse some processes of construction of social and discursive identities in a life narrative of a member of Diversidade Católica, a group of gay Catholics that exists since 2006 in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Using the theoretical and methodological apparatus from Semiolinguistic Discourse Analysis (Charaudeau, 2006, 2008, 2009), we identify the discursive strategies which the research participant employs to articulate these two identities.
