© The Author(s) 2017. Homonationalism offers a conceptual framework that allows us to understand the assimilation of the struggle for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) rights by national exceptionalism in the constitution of a geopolitical colonial differentiation. In light of recent developments, both in terms of national identity and LGBTI legal rights, we carried out a case study on Catalonia through the analytical tool of homonationalism, using different public documents as well as narrative productions. Through this analysis, we identified three rhetorical figures that the homonationalist discourse adopts in the Catalan case: territorial differentiations, political differentiations and ethnic differentiations.
