Drawing from ethnographic findings of gay Latino social circles, this study examines how gay Latino men negotiate boundaries of masculinity.These men employ specific strategies when “doing” masculinity, which in turn are shaped by their racialization as Latinos within the US context, their gendered socialization within their immigrant family, and feelings of exclusion from mainstream gay spaces.In contrast, African American and Filipino males in the same school flaunted their masculinity through their clothing, grooming and ability to dance.

On the one level, gender inequality emerges from the disproportionate allocation of material, social, political, and economic capital between men and women.Cantú dismisses the idea that Latino gay men are marginalized by an inherently homophobic Latino culture.
