Richard Rodríguez will critically examine the geographical demarcations of race and sexuality in San Francisco's Mission District as represented in Peter Bratt's 2009 film, La Mission.  As part of a book project on Latino masculinities, sexuality, and social space, the talk assesses and confronts a variety of assumptions hinging on the supposed impermeability of Latino and queer.
