Gomez Cultural Heritage Award and a New York City Council citation for his many contributions to gay and Latino culture.Just as blood curses through our queer Latino veins, so does a complex and sometimes contradictory history.

The words captured in this volume of poetry perfectly capture a moment in time in which we all are in flux and yet still very much grounded in the moment. Personally, these poems speak to my being, my sexuality, my erotic desires, my future hopes and my wishes for new generations and yet they also stand for the danger that those words might also be fragile and easily forgotten. It is up to the reader to make these words count for something.

And, simply said, its just an amazing and moving collection of poems that truly represents who we are as queer Latinos at this crucial moment in time. -Andrs Duque, LGBT rights activistAn 800-year-old tradition of Hispanic poetry gets a substantial augmentation, and at the same time, a wondrous makeover, with the rich, varied, sensual, often bi-lingual work in this collection. It helps that the translations by Xavier are so true- and that the poets amassed from all over the Americas, are mas o menos gay in subject matter and attitude.

- Felice Picano, author
