Companeros: Latino Activists in the Face of AIDS (Paperback)

£24.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Telling the affecting stories of eighty gay, bisexual, and transgender (GBT) Latino activists and volunteers living in Chicago and San Francisco, Compa\u00f1eros: Latino Activists in the Face of AIDS closely details how these individuals have been touched or transformed by the AIDS epidemic. Weaving together activists' responses to oppression and stigma, their encounters with AIDS, and their experiences as GBTs and Latinos in North America and Latin America, Jesus Ramirez-Valles explores the intersection of civic involvement with ethnic and sexual identity. Even as activists battle multiple sources of oppression, they are able to restore their sense of family connection and self-esteem through the creation of an alternative space in which community members find value in their relationships with one another. In demonstrating the transformative effects of a nurturing community environment for GBT Latinos affected by the AIDS epidemic, Ramirez-Valles illustrates that members find support in one another, as compa\u00f1eros, in their struggles with homophobia, gender discrimination, racism, poverty, and forced migration.

Jesus Ramirez-Valles is a professor of community health sciences at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
