Pedro Lemebel

Pedro Lemebel (1952-2015) was a Chilean chronicler, essayist, and novelist who famously critiqued the realities of Chile during and after the Pinochet dictatorship. He offered his critiques from an urban, queer perspective, focusing on the lives and experiences of the most marginalized members of Santiago society as they experienced love, violence, and the horrors of the AIDS epidemic. Latin American Literature Today No. 2 features a dossier of his work.
