Transnational Encounters

Ramón H. Rivera-Servera

Oxford University Press

In chapter, two seemingly excluding Latina/o dance venues in Phoenix, Arizona, provide a perfect excuse to explore how expressive culture has worked as a site for the development of discourses of masculinity and queerness at the U.S.-Mexico border, and how these discourses have been transformed into bodily practices and behaviors in transcultural and transnational settings that contest essentialist stereotypes about ethnicity and sexuality.

Keywords:   Queerness, masculinity, norteña, reggaeton, embodiment, performativity
