“This book is a beautiful, moving and fascinating read that presents a high-quality and original contribution to the field. The editors have compiled intimate testimonies that provide a superb analysis of the Chicano/Mexicano culture and social hierarchies, as well as how masculinity, queerness, and kinship play out in this context. The stories in this book are enthralling and have the potential to decolonize academic writing.” — Marcin Smietana, Research Associate in the Reproductive Sociology Research Group, University of Cambridge, UK Bringing together a unique collection of narrative accounts based on the lived experience of queer Chicano/Mexicano sons, this book explores fathers, fathering, and fatherhood. In many ways, the contributors reveal the significance of fathering and representations of fatherhood in the context of queer male sexuality and identity across generations, cultures, class, and Mexican immigrant and Mexican American families. They further reveal how father figures—godfathers, grandfathers, and others—may nurture and express love and hope for the queer young men in their extended family. Divided into six sections, the book addresses the complexity of father-queer son relationships; family dynamics; the impact of neurodiverse mental health issues; the erotic, unsafe, and taboo qualities of desire; encounters with absent, estranged or emotionally distant fathers; and a critical analysis of father and queer son relationships in Chicano/Latino literature and film.
