The present research proposes a reflection on "gender", as the formulation of audiovisual discourses, and "genre", in the sense of the social construction of sexualities. To do so, an analysis was conducted about the first season of Free! (2013), relating it to yaoi, a genre of Japanese animation focusing on homosexual relationships between male characters. Taking the theories of Judith Butler as the starting point, a North American post-structuralist philosopher, and Antonia Levi, Japanese historian, this research seeks to formulate a method of reading to be coupled with film analysis within the perspective of the questioning about audio-visual and sexual discourses.
