Based on bibliographic research, the article analyzes how queer architecture challenged gentrification, real estate speculation, and segregation of minorities in creative cities. The results show that the architecture of queer spaces can be understood as a practice of gender and sexual resistance and biopolitical disobedience, as the capitalist architecture worked as a biopolitical technology for producing gender and sexuality and shaping political and sexual identities through techniques of surveillance and the construction of the public/private divide for controlling gender and sexual reproduction.


Queer spaces, queer architecture, queer people, creative cities, gentrification.
