We're organizing the first COLLOQUIUM on SEXUAL DIVERSITIES in PUERTO
RICO, and I write to invite you to participate and send us YOUR
WONDERFUL PROPOSALS!!! The event is based at the Humanities Department,
University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez.
 
About one year ago, the UPR system included alternative sexualities in
its non-discriminatory statute, and PR sodomy laws (never quite
enforced) have been repealed. PR is thriving with change and the social
effervescence therein. And so this Colloquium comes at a perfect time
for you to enjoy this too!!!
 
The call is very open, with topics like alternative sexualities and
solidarity, violence, the media, work, health, race, science,
