  • Descrição: Examines the depiction of the marginalized homosexual Other in Santiago, Chile, as revealed in Pedro Lemebel's Loco afan: Cronicas de Sidario (1999), which documents the lives & deaths of approximately 12 transvestites (locas), most of whom died from AIDS. The cold reception of Lemebel's book by the Chilean cultural establishment is noted, & traced to the writer's sexual orientation, leftist political beliefs, & exposure of this dark, marginalized underbelly of life in Santiago, in contradistinction to the city's promotion of a prosperous, postmodern image. Lemebel's rejection of the dominant North American gay discourse -- particularly its classism & promotion of the globalization & normalization of homosexuality -- is discussed, along with how he lays the groundwork for developing an oppositional Latin American homosexual manifesto forged in both social & political resistance. 29 References.
