In these personal essays, Edgar Gomez writes about the many facets of his queer Latinx identity, sharing his tumultuous journey to self-love with honesty, humor, and warmth. His narration hits just the right notes--sometimes serious, sometimes downright giddy, sometimes tight with pain, but always open and inviting. He writes about the rigid masculinity he witnessed watching cockfights with his uncle in Nicaragua and about embracing his femme glory while performing with a queer burlesque strip show. His reflections on the Pulse nightclub shooting and its aftermath are heartbreaking, and his recollections of his first tentative forays into gay clubs, bars, and bathhouses are candid and vulnerable. This exuberantly narrated memoir is a wonderful addition to queer Latinx literature--a fierce and hopeful celebration of one young person's truth.
