Juan Carlos
Mezo-González

Hello!

I am a historian of transnational sexuality, race, and visual culture in Mexico and Latin America. 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 across the Americas from the early 1970s to the mid-1990s. My scholarship has appeared in Left History, Hispanic American Historical Review, and Digital Humanities Quarterly. I am also a former Editor of Latin American history for the peer-reviewed digital platform Notches: (re)marks on the history of sexuality and I am now a member of their Advisory Board. 

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