Tomas Tranströmer was one of my favorite poets, though I only discovered him in recent decades. The impressive beauty of his poetry is something I carry with me and I call upon it when I sit to write. There is a religion in his poetry that haunts me. Every time I show this video to my poetry students I cry from happiness. He was a great poet.

Some scholars say that Queer Latina/o writing is fast becoming a major core of the Latina/o literary canon. I say it’s the future of the canon altogether, with some of the most exciting, intelligent, and provocative American writing coming from the disciples of such luminaries as Cherríe Moraga, Rigoberto González, and Gloria Anzaldúa, among others who were cultivators of early contemporary Queer Latina/o writing.
