Homecoming Queers provides a critical discussion of the multiple
strategies used by queer Latina authors and artists in the United
States to challenge silence and invisibility within mainstream
media, literary canons, and theater spaces. Marivel T. Danielson's
analysis reveals the extensive legacy of these cultural artists,
including novelists, filmmakers, students and activists, comedians,
performers, and playwrights. By clearly discussing the complexities
and universalities of ethnic, racial, sexual, gender, and class
intersections between queer Chicana and U.S. Latinas, Danielson
explores the multiple ways identity shapes and shades creative
expression. Weaknesses and gaps are revealed in the treatment of
difference as a whole, within dominant and marginalized
Spanning multiple genres and forms, and including scholarly
theory alongside performances, films, narratives, and testimonials,
Homecoming Queers leads readers along a crucial path toward
understanding and overcoming the silences that previously existed
across these fields.
