Translocas: The Politics of Puerto Rican Drag & Trans Performance

Translocas: The Politics of Puerto Rican Drag & Trans Performance

a book talk & conversation with Lawrence La Fountain-Stokes & Arnaldo Cruz Malavé — and performances to be announced!

October 6 2022, Thursday, 6 to 7:30 pm ET

20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor

Translocas focuses on drag and transgender performance and activism in Puerto Rico and its diaspora. Arguing for its political potential, Lawrence La Fountain-Stokes explores the social and cultural disruptions caused by Latin American and Latinx “locas” (effeminate men, drag queens, transgender performers, and unruly women) and the various forms of violence to which queer individuals in Puerto Rico and the U.S. are subjected.

Co-sponsored by the NYU Hemispheric Institute of Performance & Politics, and by the Latinx Project at NYU.
