El Pequeño Homosexual: Aryan Boyz

El Pequeño Homosexual: Aryan Boyz (2012)
A blend of oral stories, superstition, Salvadoran history, and outright fiction, the anthology El Pequeño Homosexual is a self-mythologizing project in multiple parts that interacts with the literary tradition of magic realism, children’s pop-up books, and camp aesthetics to look at the American immigrant experience.

Aryan Boys is an offshoot of an image from Jesus is Always Watching – “A Sea of Power Tops – Ad infinitum” – that meditates much more heavily on the reception of images, hegemonic masculinity, and beauty, and therefore works as a critique of its narrow racial definitions.
