Coming out Narratives and Latinidad: The Pleasures of Silence. 2/25

How do strategies for queer figuration in Latino and Latin American identity differ?

What tensions exist between the "coming out of the closet" narrative and queer Latinidad?

In an analysis of U.S. Latino writers such as Piri Thomas and Junot Diaz, Dr. Ben Sifuentes-Jauregui explores how the idea of the "coming out" story fails queer Latino subjectivities.
