Abstract: In 1921 the whole island of Ireland was partitioned in two parts: in one side The Republic of Ireland became a reality for those who wanted a country outside the British rule and in the other side, a new country born; Northern Ireland, a British governed part. Northern Ireland, then, became a conflict place yet there were still two identities or communities in fight with each other; there was still the need to be fighting for the defence of the whole united Ireland or for the belonging to Great Britain. Due to this fact, Belfast-the capital city of Northern Ireland- was known as the part where 'The troubles' took place; it was a really conflictive city where its inhabitants were push to pick up a side. As we will see, that need to be positioned drove into the division of the city in two parts: The Catholic/Republican and the Unionist/Protestant, creating a sectarianized city. Schools, social space, neighbourhoods, sports, music, language, culture, friends, and everything related with one's process of socialization was hugely marked by sectarianism, creating two main different ethnonationalities. Being raised between those two strong identities in fight, then, became a nightmare for the people who couldn't fit into the ethnonationalities' discursive narrative in the creation of their social image. Those were LGBT people. Here, we are going to analyse how is being an LGBT person in Belfast and which are the struggles that they must face. Nevertheless, we are going to base our analysis only with lesbian, gay and bisexual people yet the length of the analysis didn't let space to analyse the trans identity.
