Editorial Reviews

Review

Gay Latino Studies is a startlingly original collection of essays on the culture and social worlds of gay Latinos. Using a wonderful format that pairs essays with response pieces, the book as a whole reads like a sparkling conversation full of wit, insight, cultural relevance, and political critique. Covering topics from gay shame and shamelessness, to dance and sexual identity, to the impact of HIV on gay Latino communities, Gay Latino Studies will quickly find its way onto bookshelves and into classrooms around the world.”—Judith Halberstam, author of Female Masculinity


“This collection will be an indispensable reference for any scholar working in queer or Latina/o studies. With its broad disciplinary and theoretical scope, it effectively establishes the field of gay Latino studies. It will shape the questions posed in this realm of study for some time to come.”—Ramón Saldívar, author of The Borderlands of Culture: Américo Paredes and the Transnational Imaginary


Gay Latino Studies: A Critical Reader is a collection of essays that's a literate chinga tu madre to the heteronormativity that's still endemic in Mexican (and Latino) society. Remember, gentle raza readers: We can't be homophobes and whine about Mexi discrimination in the same breath. Help eradicate H8 by buying this libro.”
(Gustavo Arellano "Ask a Mexican" column)

Gay Latino Studies is an important reader that will be useful to students and scholars in a range of disciplines, including American, Chicano, Latino, and ethnic studies; queer, feminist, and gender studies; and performance studies, English, and sociology. . . . Gay Latino Studies: A Critical Reader will be a valuable reference work for any university or personal library, for readers familiar with the themes and debates in gay Latino and Chicano studies, and for readers who are just entering these vital conversations.”
(Marci L. Carrasquillo MELUS)

“I breathe a sigh of relief with the publication of Gay Latino Studies: A Critical Reader. Even before it existed, it was missing. . . . The chapters are speaking to each other, having conversations. This format invites readers to listen and chime in. . . . And that’s what’s so cool about Gay Latino Studies for me. It feels familiar, like I know these brothers, and I do. Like I’m in those pages here and there, and I am.”
(Tatiana de la Tierra La Bloga)

"I’ve been waiting for a book like this – as personal and intellectually stimulating as this one – for over a decade. A book that uses, and yet does not take for granted, the very categories that inspire its existence. This inspiring compilation of chapters (some of which have been published in the previous decade) followed by recent critiques effectively offers a critical studies reader that moves between the categories, gay and queer, in complex ways. This, for some of us, is inevitably our bible."
(Salvador Vidal-Ortiz Latino Studies)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book when it first came out. Great prize and quality of service. The book is extremely educational and a great resource to have in your libary. It gives a great understanding of gay latino studies, something that is greatly needed in many social sciences fields.
