Juan Carlos


I am a historian of sexuality, race, and visual culture in Mexican and transnational contexts. I earned a PhD in History from the University of Toronto in 2022 and I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the same institution. My research and teaching focus on Mexican, Latin American, LGBTQ+, and Indigenous history. I am currently writing a book that examines the relationship between transnational gay liberation politics, periodicals, and visuality in the Americas from the early 1970s to the mid-1990s. I have authored several academic articles, one of them published in the Hispanic American Historical Review. In addition, I am a member of the advisory boards of the digital platforms Notches: (re)marks on the history of sexuality and OutHistory.

Aside from history, I am passionate about hiking and mountaineering!
