Subjective experiences nowadays are crisscrossed by continuous connection mediated by digital media. From this perspective, we aim, with this research project, propose the analysis of the possibilities of representations of difference that constitute forms of being in the world, pervaded by sexualities produced by channel followers "Põe na Roda" working with a type of humor and information that is produced by individuals who live their desire outside the heterosexual norm. We will seek to reflect on the social relevance of the creation and spread of content issued by the channel in the construction of (in)visibilities referring to the imaginary of sexualities in Brazil and this questioning will have the theoretical and methodological basis provided by queer theory. In the field work, through online ethnography, raise data through the comments made by the followers in the channel videos on youtube, the official channel pages on Facebook and other created by fans. Finally, in the quest to understand how those who do not fit the heterosexual model (self) reflect seize and prepare their speeches, semi-structured interviews and spontaneous conversations with followers through the digital media or in person will be held.
