About the Event
Unidxs is happy to host Edgar Gomez, author of High Risk Homosexual, for a reading and conversation about his memoir about coming of age as a gay Latinx man.
Gomez’s witty memoir follows a touching and often hilarious spiralic path to embracing his gay, Latinx identity against a culture of machismo—from his uncle’s cockfighting ring in Nicaragua to cities across the U.S.—and the bath houses, night clubs, and drag queens who helped him redefine pride.
