"A Gay Cuban Activist in Exile: Reinaldo Arenas"

Wednesday, November 7
10 a.m. Buttrick G-4

Between Reinaldo Arenas's arrival in the United States in 1980 and his suicide a decade later, the Cuban exile produced his most mature writing. In his book, A Gay Cuban Activist in Exile, Ocasio explores Arenas's bold criticism of the Castro regime, including his fierce advocacy of homosexuality and his willingness to alienate Latino and Latin American audiences in order to remain true to his self-proclaimed identity.
