Queens Rising / Pride Month: The Dissidence of Reinaldo Arenas

Mes del Orgullo LGBTQ: La Disidencia de Reinaldo Arenas

English: The Dissidence of Reinaldo Arenas: Queering Literature, Politics, and the Activist Curriculum explores the didactical nature of the late Cuban queer dissident Reinaldo Arenas’s creative writing. We consider Arenas as a public pedagogue, mentor, and social activist who continues to influence generations of dissident writers and artists in Latin America and beyond. In our dialogue, we present our individual critical readings of Arenas’s writing as well as and discuss each other’s interpretations.
