Jotos del Barrio


Jotos del Barrio is a literary work presented as a collection of poems, monologues, and vignettes that takes the audience into the lives of young Latino, Chicano, Tejano, Mexicano, and Mexican-American gay men as they discover the joys and trials of their multiple identities.  In each piece, characters search for voice, a sense of place, and respect as they are confronted by racism, homophobia and other complexities of twenty-first century living. Jotos del Barrio seeks to empower, educate, and create dialogue.
