Queer Dance

Justin Torres

Oxford University Press

This short essay, originally published in The Washington Post only days after the 2016 shooting in the Orlando gay club PULSE, highlights the range of lives and practices that find their space, find their moment in the queer Latinx club. The essay mourns those lost in Orlando by celebrating all the ways people get to the club, share space in the club, and come home from the club. Torres’s writing opens a space not then only for mourning what is lost, but also to celebrate the many reasons queer Latinx people have found refuge and hope in the space of the club, while also acknowledging it is not a utopic space.

Keywords:   queer Latinx club, Latinx, Latin night, Orlando, PULSE, gay club, shooting
