The aim of the article is to question the links between queer theory and psychoanalysis. It is an opportunity to rethink the ethics of psychoanalysis on the basis of criticisms that have emerged since the AIDS crisis from the so-called margins of sexuality. The analysis of various events of the year 1981 are at the basis of the questions developed in the text.
