'A story of the abject, an urban cultural history, and a literary meditation, Queer Latino Testimonio, Keith Haring, and Juanito Xtravaganza is a glorious assemblage of voices, images, rhythms, and sensualities of the turbulent last two decades of twentieth-century New York City. A stirring portrait of the upheavals, deaths, and hopeful futures of bodies under siege. A marvelous piece of scholarship!' - MARTIN F. MANALANSAN IV, Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and author of Global Divas: Filipino Gay Men in the Diaspora
'Narrated with sensitivity and style, Queer Latino Testimonio, Keith Haring, and Juanito Xtravaganza reminds us that the greatest of our cultural icons are never simply isolated geniuses, but instead reflections of the messy, funky, difficult, exasperating, and exciting realities of everyday life. In a word, the book you hold in your hands is legendary!" - ROBERT F. REID-PHARR, Professor of English, CUNY Graduate School, and author of Once You Go Black: Choice, Desire, and the Black American Intellectual
'A thrilling biography of a character that is both real and imagined, and a fresh vision of what Cultural Studies can become.' - MAYRA SANTOS-FEBRES, Professor of Hispanic Literatures, University of Puerto Rico, and author of Sirena Selena
'An alluring, uncompromising tale of tails in the waning years of the age of x-travagance, and the dawn of the age of AIDS.' - RUBEN RIOS-AVILA, Professor of Comparative Literature, University of Puerto Rico, and author of La raza comica
