Product Overview

In this book, Daniel Enrique Perez examines the various ways queer identities are represented in Chicana/o and Latina/o cultural texts. Through a gender, ethnicity, and sexuality lens, he demonstrates that queer Chicana/o and Latina/o identities are much more prevalent in cultural production than most people think. He argues that the representation of queer identities goes well beyond gay Chicana/o and Latina/o stereotypes: "maricones," "jotos," and "marimachas." Macho men, the Latin lover, "Pocho," "Real Women Have Curves," "Selena," and several other characters and texts""are also queer. By claiming such a variety of characters and texts as queer, he erases that infamous forward slash that tends to be drawn between the terms "straight" and "gay" while expanding the breadth of queer representation in cultural production.
