Larry La Fountain, professor of queer studies at the University of Michigan talks about his new book Queer Ricans, an exploration of the cultural expression of Puerto Rican queerness and how sexuality has shaped and defined the Puerto Rican experience in the United States.

    Hey, Latin America is mostly Brazil LOL

    And the butt is ‘big’ down there too. J-Lo, Beyonce, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera… they all use that Brazilian jeans that makes the derrière looks rounder and fuller. K-Fed even rapped about the “popozão” because Britney bought 9 pairs when she visited Rio

    Kudos to my Jewish Brazilian fellas in Rio (I miss all those parties! Happy Yom Kipur) and Rican friends. I miss all those parties

  2. Lol did Larry say Griffith?… She is so D-List still ^^

  3. Ooops! Guilty as accused! I did say Kathy Griffith, LOL.

    Thanks for having me on the show! It was really fun! I’ve been laughing a lot as I listen to it.

    I agree with Larry, Jones Beach on Long Island is awesome! Used to go there when I was kid during the summers when visiting family in NY. Didn’t know about the nude part though!

  5. Professor Larry is one of my favorite guests. Always great to learn about another aspect of our experience and see thru the eyes of another. I am super excited for the new book he talked about too!

  6. OMG… Fausto, you’re so bad! And Toro, you’re so nice! Thanks for your message! I REALLY have to make it to California one of these days!!!! I’ll be reading from my book Queer Ricans in Ann Arbor (Wednesday Oct 7 at 7 pm, sh/AUT/ Gallery and Performance Space, across from /aut/ Bar in Kerrytown) and in New York City (Thursday Oct 22 at 8 pm, Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance, Hunts Point, The Bronx)! Hope to see some of you there!

  7. Larry I’m at UC Santa Cruz now. Maybe you could do a reading at our campus then we can have a private reading…kidding of course :-}~
