Examines the intersections of “Latino,” “queer,” and “American,” to demonstrate how the kinds of sophistication, race, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity are at once entangled with problems with citizenship and belonging.

María-Amelia Viteri explores the a number of unfixed meanings that the time period “Latino” takes on as this class is reappropriated and translated via LGBT “Latinos” in Washington, DC, San Salvador, and Quito. utilizing an anthropology-based, interdisciplinary strategy, she exposes the artistic ways that migrants—including herself—subvert conventional readings in response to state of starting place, pores and skin colour, language, and immigrant prestige. A severe examine the a number of methods migrants view what it capacity to be American, Latino, and/or queer presents fertile flooring for theoretical, methodological, and political debates at the significance of a queer transnational and immigration framework while studying citizenship and belonging. Desbordes (un/doing, overflowing borders) ethnographically addresses the bounds and constraints of present paradigms in which sexuality and gender were typically analyzed as they intersect with race, type, ethnicity, immigration prestige, and citizenship. This e-book makes use of the concept that of “queerness” as an analytical software to problematize the idea of a unbroken dating among id and practice.
