Juan Carlos Mezo-González


I am a historian of sexuality, race, and visual culture in Mexican and transnational contexts. I hold an Honors B.A. in History from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (2014) and an M.A. and Ph.D. in History from the University of Toronto (2022). 

My research and teaching focus on Mexican, Latin American, LGBTQ+, and Indigenous history. I am currently a Visiting Scholar in Sexuality Studies at York University. My first book project (under contract with Duke University Press) examines the relationship between transnational gay liberation politics, periodicals, and images in the Americas from the early 1970s to the mid-1990s.
