Today in Puerto Rican History

Today is the anniversary of Puerto Rico's Grito de Lares. It is also the 4th anniversary of the murder of Filiberto Ojeda Rios by the FBI. Below are interviews in Spanish with English subtitles by director Vagabond who is also the director of Machetero.

Wondering what all this has to do with sexuality? I highly recommend you read the book Imposing Decency: The Politics of Sexuality & Race In Puerto Rico 1870-1920 by Eileen J. Suarez Findlay.
