Translocas: The Politics of Puerto Rican Drag and Trans Performance, written by Lawrence La Fountain-Stokes and published in 2021 by the University of Michigan Press, focuses on drag and transgender performance and activism in Puerto Rico and its diaspora. Arguing for its political potential, 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.

This event is part of IRWG’s Gender: New Works, New Questions series, which spotlights recent publications by U-M faculty members and allows for deeper discussion by an interdisciplinary panel.
