For years, Chico/Chicana scholars--like Alicia Gaspar de Alba, Elvia R. Arriola, Lourdes Torres, and of course, Cherrie Moraga and the late Gloria Anzaladúa--have written circles around us about the politics of culture, place and community. These women in particular seem to be fearless in investigative gaze surrounding the politics of eros within their communities. José Esteban Muñoz's albeit seminal Disidenificaitons speaks to a "Latino" performance, or as he phrases it one of "Queers of Color". Yet, to date, it has been the closest that we have come to a genuine scholarly effort to articulate the political function governing the erotic within the Cuban American community by a Cuban American scholar until now.
Ortíz's work is scrupulous, fascinating and inventive. Rather than repeat the theoretical notions of race, place, gender and time that have come to be literary critical practice, they are merely the tools--Foucauldian, Critical Race, Gender Theories--by which he fashions a incisive path in this area of thought. Many, many scholars to come already owe this author an enormous debt of gratitude for the groundwork he has laid.
