About the Author

Néstor Perlongher (1949–92) was an Argentine Brazilian poet, anthropologist and activist, as well as a professor at the University of Campinas, São Paulo.


‘Irreverent and tender in equal measure, these essays carry the energy of radical queer poetics into the streets where social bodies and capitalist impulses collide in the shadow of fascism. Brimming with perverse splendour and neo-baroque viscosities, Perlongher’s classic text has much to teach contemporary movements about the role of queer aesthetics, imaginative sexual politics, and the dynamism of language as a revolutionary force.’
Juana María Rodríguez, author of Sexual Futures, Queer Gestures, and Other Latina Longings
