Through a gender, ethnicity, and sexuality lens, Pérez demonstrates that queer Chicana/o and Latina/o identities are much more prevalent in cultural production than most people think. By claiming a variety of characters and texts as queer, he expands the breadth of queer representation in cultural production.
DANIEL ENRIQUE PÉREZ is Assistant Professor of Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies, Chair of Ethnic Studies, and Faculty Associate of Gender, Race, and Identity Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno, USA.

Editorial Reviews

"Daniel Enrique Pérez is a titan of Jotería Studies. He blasts the canon to show that the sexual identity of Latinos is far less stable than is conventionally thought." - Ilán Stavans, Author of The Hispanic Condition and On Borrowed Words
