Abstract

 "...he is dancing, a poet, a black boy / in a culture where masculinity iscode," says the voice of Kevin Everod Quashie, a poet from St. Kitts, inhis 2003 poem "Genesis". What is said and sung by Quashie may wellstand for the root emotion and intellectual drive behind this gathering ofqueer presences from the region where, according to the late Antonio BenítezRojo, the island repeats herself (Antonio's island is female), but is not quitethe same in becoming identical with being beside herself.
