Cuentamelo: An Oral History of Queer “Latin@” Immigrants in San Francisco

Juliana Delgado conducted interviews with four gay and transgender Latin American immigrants who tell of coming to San Francisco in the 1980s and the ways in which they survived, built, changed (and were changed by) the city. This small compilation of oral histories maps Latin queerness as seen and lived in Spanish: It highlights the changes that over time have impacted the community: immigration laws, access to health care, the hormone black market, AIDS funding, and, with it, the rise and fall of Latino organizations, bars, and community centers.

The translated interviews are available on the SFWeekly webpage.
