Sinceridad camp, ó, el hombre que se fué

En el Trasnocheo tributo a nuestro amado colega José Esteban Muñoz, tuve el honor de sacar a flote la cabaretera que llevo dentro (y no tan dentro). José tenia muchas cualidades, una de las cuales era apodar gente. Uno de sus apodos para mí era “Ham Diva” (nombre que me dió hace años cuando le dije que iba a dar una plática acerca de Judy Garland en un panel en el que estaríamos los dos). Entonces, en nombre de este apodo - y recién salido del horno del karaoke - aquí hay un poquito de algo para el hombre que se fué.

Presentado durante el Trasnocheo organizado en memoria de José Esteban Muñoz. Curado por Tavia Nyong'o, Jack Halberstam, and Macarena Gomez-Barris.

Camp Sincerity, or the man that got away

In a night of Trasnocheo tributes to our beloved comrade José Esteban Muñoz, I was honored to bring out my inner (and not so inner) cabaret queen. José had many gifts; one of them was for bestowing nicknames. One of his nicknames for me was “Ham Diva.” (He coined it on the spot many years ago, when I told him I was giving a talk on Judy Garland for an MLA panel we were both on.) So, in the spirit of that nickname -- and fresh-ish from the karaoke can -- here's a little something for el hombre que se fue.
