The novels of the French Moroccan writer Abdellah Taïa examine carefully the masculinity in the migratory context. Homosexual and exiled, Taïa tries to build his sexual identity according to the Western model; in so doing, it contributes to the creation of a transnational Islamic masculinity that is decentered, while remaining rooted to the cultural heritage of its lands of origin. This article aims to examine the modalities of identity constructions from Connell's studies on hegemonic masculinity and Lacanian psychoanalysis applied to the imaginary dimension of the body.
