New to the distinguished heritage of Latino literature is Virgins, Guerillas and Locas, a new collection of writings—many never before published—by twenty-one outstanding contemporary gay Latino authors.

From a Virgin of Guadalupe sighting by a cholo junkie to a queer boy being sweetly broken into the world of love by his doting biker father; from two lovers with physical disabilities discovering new means of nonverbal communication to the picaresque romp of three cha cha queens at the Bronx Zoo: Virgins, Guerillas and Locas explores the life and loves of gay Latino men with humor, candor, and affection.
