¡Cuéntamelo!

Oral Histories by LGBT Latino Immigrants

By Julián Delgado Lopera

Aunt Lute Books is excited to announce the 2nd Edition of Julián Delgado Lopera’s book, ¡Cuéntamelo! Oral Histories by LGBT Latino Immigrants. ¡Cuéntamelo! began as a cover story for SF Weekly, and, after receiving a grant from the Queer Cultural Center and Galería de la Raza in San Francisco, the book was born. In 2014, the 1st edition of ¡Cuéntamelo! (self-published by Delgado Lopera) quickly sold out after a short run. This year, we’re pleased to bring this title back into circulation! This new edition of ¡Cuéntamelo! features beautiful black and white photos of the contributors and an updated introduction from Juliana.
